Women empowerment programmes — A visual journey
Navigating politics is an intrinsic game where hate speech and sexist perceptions of leadership can destroy a talented and committed politician. The image that a politician has to look or behave in a certain way has led many to transform their characters to fit the mould.
The emergence of strong female characters in global politics is not a trend, indicating that politics has evolved into a positive environment for developing female political talent. Yet, the demand by citizens to see more women elected has pushed political parties to understand that as organisations, they should have political figures that look like the people they represent.
The commitment of political parties to developing more female political talent should not be confined to March 8th. Luckily, an increasing number of parties are creating programmes and communities to empower more women to attract and recruit female talent to politics and develop the potential of those bright women who are already working to serve their communities.
Join us on this visual journey to celebrate female political talent through different efforts tailored to have more women elected.
