Political parties are the main entryway to politics and should serve as gatekeepers of democracy. When political parties adopt effective gender equality measures within their own structures, they widen their support base, increase women’s access to parliaments, and contribute to better laws and policies for all.
Join ODIHR for a webinar on “Promoting Women’s Participation and Leadership in Political Parties", to gather prominent women leaders, political party representatives and practitioners from across the OSCE region. ODIHR will present its new online tool for political parties to evaluate their own gender equality. More relevant than ever during the health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this tool aims to boost the participation of women in politics across, helping to make the political landscape and decision-making representative of all citizens.
