Women's political leadership

In discussing sources of motivation for their potential engagement, 67.4% of respondents say that there is nothing that could motivate them to get engaged in political life. The remaining percentage is evenly distributed across a multitude of sources of motivation, such as a job opportunity (6.4%), money (5.3%) and many other sources. We might conclude that there is no single and specific prevailing motivator or factor that would encourage the participants to become politically active.

In collaboration with the Arab Women Organization (AWO), Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) have developed a template guiding election observation from a gender perspective in the Arab region.

The template provides resources to facilitate the tasks of election observers in a way that contributes to preparing sound and thoroughly integrated reports on election monitoring from a gender perspective.
