What We Do

Gender Equality & Empowerment

Supporting political gender equality and women’s  empowerment is the best way to build a more peaceful, more inclusive and more prosperous world.

Achieving political gender equality and advancing women’s rights and voice are core goals in all of our programming worldwide. We work to ensure that our legislative strengthening and parliamentary support initiatives contribute to transforming historic drivers of inequality. From aiding parliamentary defense committees to conduct gender analysis to assisting women’s caucuses to fighting against gendered disinformation and violence – the Parliamentary Centre is committed to gender equality in democracy.

As a democracy assistance organisation, the Parliamentary Centre is uniquely positioned to play a positively impactful role in promoting and supporting gender equality and social inclusion in the political sphere, as well as within its operations.
