Domain 2 – Gender equality in external communication and representation

This domain assesses gender equality in external communication, including the visibility of gender issues and the representation of the parliament. 

What and how parliaments communicate externally has a direct links to democratic processes and the symbolic role parliaments have in a country. Official communication in gender-sensitive parliaments is free of gendered stereotypes, at both linguistic and content level, and the visibility of gender issues throughout parliamentary activity contributes to making the society at large aware of the relevance of these issues.
