Towards Effective Participation of Women in Local Councils Booklet
In 2017, Tadwein for Gender Studies designed a project “The Councils are Ours” to encourage and support the effective participation of women in the Egyptian local councils. The project aimed to create more spaces for women to effectively occupy political and public spaces, fight social stigmas regarding women’s presence and participation in political spaces, provide better representation of youth in the formal political channels, and address issues of violence against women at the local level.
A simplified introductory booklet that explains the local councils’ constitution’s articles, clarifying their duties and responsibilities, trying to link the local development programs and the needs of women in Egypt was also developed as a result of this project.
