The “Women in Power” Programme aims to strengthen women’s political participation and challenge gendered political structures. Through this programme we conduct training on gender and politics; facilitate networking and collaboration of women parliamentarians and other women in government; and conduct research for publication.
The Women in Power Programme seeks to increase women’s political participation but also to offer a transformative model of governance and equip women with the knowledge, resources and networks to make a positive contribution to the realisation and advancement of women’s rights when elected.
