The power of conversation: how the Gambia’s select committee on gender is strengthening women’s rights
Research shows that when more women are in positions of leadership, society as a whole benefits. For the last six months, WFD has been working closely with the Gambian Parliament’s select committee on gender to get women’s political representation on the national agenda. By working with the committee members on a range of areas such as gender-sensitive budgeting, committee members enhanced their ability to promote legal reforms that will see more women in elected leadership positions.
