Collection and publication of gender-disaggregated information around electoral processes contributes to raising awareness and advancement of women's rights.
- By Governments: (…) (e) Monitor and evaluate progress in the representation of women through the regular collection, analysis and dissemination of quantitative and qualitative data on women and men at all levels in various decision-making positions in the public and private sectors, and disseminate data on the number of women and men employed at various levels in governments on a yearly basis (...).
- EMBs are well-placed to ensure that the data they collect are disaggregated by sex. This data allow an EMB to identify any gender gaps in registration, turnout or staffing levels and where such gaps are identified, to monitor any progress in closing them. Ensuring that any data collected are sex-disaggregated may require legislative reform or changes to electoral regulations.
