Status of women in East Timor
Ten years on from independence in East Timor much is being done to improve the status of women, including new legislation to ensure 30 per cent female representation in parliament. Australia's aid program in East Timor has a strong gender focus. One example of this is in the justice sector, where AusAID is supporting civil society organisations that address violence against women and improve access to information and services.
