VALIDATION WORKSHOP ON BEYOND VOTING: INCREASING WOMEN’S PARTICIPATION IN THE POLITICAL PROCESS
The Rule of Law and Empowerment Initiative also known as Partners West Africa Nigeria (PWAN) organized a one day validation workshop in furtherance of the project “Beyond Voting: Increasing Women’s Participation in the Political Process”
The Project aims to contribute to building women communities that are more conscious and participatory in the electoral process. This goes beyond just voting, but also vying for electoral positions both at the local, state and national levels through various advocacy and sensitization exercises. The project intends to also advocate for review of political practices that limits the participation of women and encourage more women to engage with the process.
The validation workshop was organized to review the researchers’ mapping and comparative analysis across the six geo-political zones in order to increase women’s political participation and also amplify women’s voice in the political process
