We Believe


A Positive Narrative contributes to creating a Positive Spaces for Women in Politics

By highlighting the achievements of women political leaders, we can build role models and promote more women in politics. Creating a positive narrative on women political leaders is the essence of our work.


Allyship of Men as an Enabler

Where political spaces are dominated by men, they can play a critical role by acting as allies of women and promote women colleagues in political spaces. 


Political Leadership is the most powerful tool to change peoples lives and bring gender equality

Political leaders elected to governments become responsible for influencing and making policies for millions of people. People also find inspiration from political leaders, so having responsible politicians representing diverse groups is an effective tool to bring a change to existing inequalities.
