Politics, Power & Promoting Women

This webinar sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the United States and the Global NGO Executive Committee was presented on the margins of the 68th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in NYC.


A powerful route to achieving gender equality and empowerment of all women is engaging them in governmental institutions to initiate and support policy decisions affecting their environmental, economic, social and cultural lives and livelihood. Strong democratic institutions are built on gender equity inclusive of equal representation and participation by women and girls.


To watch this panel of experts discuss strengthening institutions by promoting gender equity in parliamentary bodies at a global level, encouraging women to run for elected office at a national level, and passing the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women(CEDAW) at the state and local level, just click HERE
