Below are a few questions to begin this conversation thread:
What do we mean when we refer to “women’s political participation”?
What impact on decision-making do women have when they have an equal role in political leadership? What are the benefits beyond politics?
How do we measure impact? Discuss M&E practices. What needs to be measured and what is not currently being measured?
How are representation numbers (quantity) and the quality of representation addressed differently?
In what ways do you see NGO’s moving women’s political participation forward?
Are international conventions and treaties (i.e. CEDAW) helpful in advocacy efforts to increase women's political participation? If so, what are examples of international standards and conventions being used to increase participation?
