The pursuit of democracy is incomplete without policies, measures and practices that seek to reduce inequalities between men and women in all spheres of life and which anchor democracy and its intersection with gender.

Democracy is supposed to transform power relations between men and women by promoting the equal distribution of power and influence between women and men. We are committed to ensuring that gender equality is integrated in democracy building.
