- The Colombian Congressional Women's Caucus supported legislation and policies that address violence against women. Of particular importance is Law 1257 of 2008, which significantly increased sanctions and sentencing for violence and discrimination against women. The Caucus also supported the Equal Pay Act (1496 of 2011) and Law 1475 of 2012 on quotas for political-party and electoral lists which addressed the issue of women’s participation in elected office.
