1. How Policymakers affect the civic participation of women?

Political participation by women is necessary to affect the decisions and policies that impact their daily lives. Women have different concerns than men, and often place different values on the concerns that they have in common with men. Political participation can range from voting, to addressing labels for a feminist candidate, to sitting on a local council or commission, to running for political office. Women’s political participation is the only way to ensure that women’s lives, opinions and ideas are represented. Also, women’s political participation is important as democracy is strengthened through equal representation.

One could argue that women participation in politics should only be limited to education and children. Do you feel the same? It will be interesting to hear your views on this.

Many thanks
