“We need women with a vision, women who are really committed to changing the lives of other women…If we do not bring women into politics, if we do not increase their number, if we do not have a specific agenda, I do not think our political counterparts will be willing to listen. So who is going to do that? The best way is to have strong, committed, mission-driven women inside the parliament to lobby, advocate, and claim the rights of half the population.”
– The Hon. Shinkai Karokhail

WHY WE DO IT
Despite comprising over 50 percent of the world’s population, women continue to be notably underrepresented in politics and gender inequality exists worldwide. Globally, only one in five Parliamentarians is female. Women face multiple barriers that limit their access to political office, including discrimination, income disparity and lack of access to education.
Yet when women are empowered as political leaders, more laws are passed to protect women’s rights and countries experience better education, health, economic development, and tangible gains for democratic governance.
The time is now to capitalize on the current global increase in women political leaders.
