Raising Women's Political Participation in Brazil

The project funds were recently disbursed from UN Women to the UN Women Brazil Country Office. With unanticipated immediate needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Country Office has not started the funded project or used the funds as of the date of this report.

UN Women is excited and anxious to Raise Women's Politiacal Participation in Brazil. While women are 51% of the population in Brazil, just 15% of Parliamentarians are women. Supported by CHIME FOR CHANGE, UN Women will host capacity-building convenings to support women leaders as they work towards Brazil 50-50, a parity democracy that will balance the political representation of men and women. Our work will assemble a group of women leaders from Brazil's political parties, including young, Afro-Brazilian and indigenous women to increase their political participation.
