     After full-evaluation of the women’s movement, the current social situation and its potential, and also in comparison to the international trends, the philosophy “All Creatures are created equal and co-exist together” comes to mind.  Following this, we have established the basic concept that “equal participation & decision- making” can assist the women policy guidelines and the key points are as follows:

1. Create a “Mutual Respect; Objective/Subjective Shifting” Structure: In a patriarchal and discriminating society, women are seen as sex objects, reproducers and family caretakers.  Sex, reproduction, and caretaking provided by the female body have been taken for granted.  The complicated social structure has objectified women, turning them into subordinated tools, the second sex and a secondary citizen.  By following the philosophy as shown, we will be able to create a “Mutual Respect; Objective/Subjective Shifting” structure which respects diversity in society and aims for a woman-friendly environment.

2. Create a political mechanism that encourages democratic participation, interest sharing, and wiser use of resources: This philosophy also implies that resources are limited.  Both the government and its people need to show mutual respect for one another; the shift from objective to subjective and vice versa is sometimes necessary.  By using a political mechanism which encourages democratic participation and the sharing of interests, resources shall be dispersed more evenly and accordingly.

3. Create a dual economic mechanism:  From a woman’s view point, this philosophy aims at creating a dual economic mechanism which meets the needs of women.  It combines the socialist side of welfare, public, non-profitable with capitalist side of production and free market, balancing the needs of both sides.
