Public, political and digital participation

Gender and sexual equality will not be achieved without increasing women’s access to and influence in political organizations, policy making and participatory spaces. This is important because:

  • it helps to build women’s voice and political agency for negotiating their rights
  • it fosters transformative leadership capacities in women for attaining gender justice
  • it illustrates why political empowerment of women is important for addressing gender inequity in other arenas such as the economy and the society
