“We need more women in Parliaments and as political leaders because…”

The Women In Parliaments Global Forum (WIP) is running the WIP Leadership Campaign, for which more than fifty male Presidents and Prime Ministers champion the cause of a more diverse leadership of the world by giving a personal testimonial and completing the sentence: “We need more women in Parliaments and as political leaders because…”. This is a timely call as there is clear evidence showing that greater diversity and equality create stronger leadership and better governance. Currently, almost 80% of Parliamentarians are male, there are still 37 States in which men account for more than 90% of Parliamentarians, and only 17 women are serving in elected heads of state or government roles.
