Political Empowerment

The Political Empowerment for Women Committee of the Human Rights Task Force 

We believe that increasing the number of women in public office will help to ensure that essential public services like health and education benefit all women, men, girls and boys. Women in public office will improve judicial systems so that they guarantee equal legal protection to women and men. Women in public office would help to reduce all forms of violence, particularly against women and children. Women in public office will promote the ratification, implementation and reporting on women's international and regional instruments such as the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against women (CEDAW).

Please share this one-page information sheet on Political Empowerment for Women with your club members.
