“Women’s Political Participation at the National Level”

Last week our program manager, Polet, participated in a workshop hosted by Women for Prosperity. The panel showcased stories from indigenous people,  Members of Parliament, and various female leaders.

Participants shared the struggles and triumphs they experienced during the process of  joining politics at the national level.

The main takeaways were:

1) Leaders in all political parties should work to help promote women to high leadership roles within politics.

2) Elected female leaders have a great responsibility to help their people. They should work to learn what their communities need and find ways to address these issues.

3) Elected leaders top priorities should include: health, land security, and alleviation of poverty.
