Women should be present in at least half of the government leadership of China's central government ministries, provincial and city governments, said the National Human Rights Action Plan of China (2009-2010) released Monday by the Information Office of the State Council.

The plan said the state will continue increasing women's participation in the management of state and social affairs.

People's congresses, political consultative conferences and local governments at all levels should have at least one female member in their leadership, it said.

Women should be present in at least 50 percent of the government leadership of central government ministries, provincial governments (governments of autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the central government) and city governments (governments of prefectures and leagues).

The proportion of female civil servants in the leadership of departments and divisions will be increased in government bodies above the city (prefecture) level, it said.

At least 20 percent of the reserve cadres at provincial, city and county levels should be women. The proportion of women civil servants in state organs at all levels will be increased, and in professions and industries where women are in the majority the number of women holding managerial posts should be in an appropriate proportion to the number of total women workers.

An appropriate number of women members will be included in community committees and village committees, the plan said.
