LIU Bo-hong(Women's Studies Institute of China,Beijing 100730,China)  
In compliance to the demand of the UN Decade on Women,South Korean government established in 1983 the department for the development of Korean women under the ministry of health and welfare.After the 4th World Conference on Women,South Korean government followed up on the international trend in strengthening national mechanism for the improvement of women's status and elevated the national mechanism for gender equality and making gender aware policies.This elevation enables the mainstreaming of gender in the design and implementation of government policies and also increases the power,capacity,influence and efficiency of this national mechanism.It effectively advances gender equality and sustainable development in South Korea.The way that South Korea advanced its national mechanism and gender mainstreaming efforts was recognized in 1999 by the UN Development Fund for Women(UNIFEM) as one of the seven best practices in implementing the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women(CEDAW).South Korean method and experience are useful reference for the strengthening and improvement of the national mechanism for advancing women's status in China.
