International Conference Global Developments in Achieving Equitable Gender Competitiveness (GECC) Women's Participation in Public Life "Policy, Legislation and Decision-Making"

Despite the ongoing efforts to ensure the sustainability of women's advancement in political action and decision-making, and what is called for and confirmed by many international conferences, reports and studies related to the promotion of women's participation in politics, legislation and decision-making; however the levels of women's participation in this important field remain far from achieving what is expected in comparison to the efforts made in reality! 

How true is this hypothesis?
