To eliminate the gender discrimination in society, the government of Mexico is working on the three areas: promotion and protection of women’s rights in the legislation, integration of gender perspectives into the Public Administration, and design of programs and policies to improve women’s status.  The National Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Program for Women (PROEQUIDAD) is thus designed for implementing the objectives of gender mainstreaming in Mexico.  Under this framework, 83 projects has been started to tackle gender issues, aiming at the incorporation of gender perspective, promotion of women’s human rights, provision of equal economic opportunities, reduction of the poverty, fulfillment of educational goals, emphasis on health issues, eradication of violence, enhancement of female leadership and increase the number of female leaders, and promotion of women-favored actions.

     Different federal government entities are taking distinct gender-related actions for the advancement of women.  For example, the Ministry of Social Development pushes Temporary Employment Program, Agriculture Day Labourer’s Program, Productive Opportunity Program, and State On–demand Projects.  The Ministry of Public Education is applying Family and Gender Projects to Education for Life.  The Ministry of Economy expands the Microfinancing Fund for Rural Women.  Women’s Program in Rural Development is established by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock Production, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food.  The National Institute for Women (INMUJERES) is the national machinery for the advancement of women in Mexico.  It devotes to the creation of a gender equality society, and further information is available at http://www.inmujeres.gob.mx/
