Bolivia vows to ensure new laws are adequately implemented to achieve transformative change

Highlighting its changes to the Constitution as well as specific laws to confront violence against women, against racism or discrimination of any kind, and to confront harassment and political violence, as well as new laws requiring gender parity and alternating political representation—as a result of which women now make up 53.1 per cent of Bolivia’s Legislative Assembly and 47.2 per cent of its Senate—Bolivia commits to continue such progress and ensure that these norms are adequately implemented so that laws can effectively transform the lives of rural and urban women and girls. To this end, Bolivia pledges to provide all the necessary conditions, human and economic resources, and strengthened institutions. [Commitment statement]
