State Councils for Women's Rights
The State Councils for Women's Rights aim to promote state-level policies for women (with a gender perspective) that aim to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, including economic and financial ones. They should therefore serve to expand social control over such policies. The councils have female councilors that represent the government and civil society, and coordinate with the National Council for Women's Rights.
