The project will commence immediately after recent donations are disbursed to fund the project.
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.
