Advancing Women’s Political Participation


Women’s participation in political life and public decision-making is fundamental to equitable societies, effective governance, and improved human development outcomes. When women are able to contribute to decisions that affect their lives – as active citizens, educated voters, and effective leaders – entire communities benefit. The Asia Foundation works to dismantle obstacles to women’s political participation and empowers women across Asia to play active roles in political and decision-making processes.
