WOMEN LEADERSHIP


Description

PROJECT NAME: FROM LAW TO PRACTICE ON WOMEN LEADERSHIP

DEVELOPMENT PARTNER: UN WOMEN

YEAR: 2017

Under this project we built the capacity of political parties on laws promoting women leadership, organized women into a political capital from across parties and mobilized support for women candidature from communities by increasing their visibility. We worked with other stakeholders to ensure the security of women and communities at large during the electoral period.

The UN Resolution 1325 which was adopted as our Kenya National Action Plan recognizes the role of women in peace building. We engaged women in various peace processes in identified violence hotspots and mobilized support for our court case on failure of parliament to reach or enact legislation on the 2/3rd gender principle.

A participant contributes to discussions on women leadership during our Naivasha Public forum in support of Hon Jane Kiharas candidature.

Participants append their signatures as a pledge to uphold peace, during the Kisumu County peace march.
