Imara Women Democracy Talks

The inclusion of women and enhancing their place in leadership remains unfinished, particularly in relation to women’s civil and political rights. Democratic governance stands on two pillars, the first is representative and participatory. Making the distinction between representation in terms of numbers and meaningful participation that allows inputs and inclusion from the various stakeholders mainly women as such, women’s representation in African cabinets remains on low on an average at 22%3. The right of women to participate in political and electoral processes is vital and should be prioritized.

The ‘Imara Women Democracy Learning Sessions’ empowers women and young people working on politics, accountability, transparency, good governance in The United Republic of Tanzania (mainland and Zanzibar) and Kenya. The sessions are part of the Global Democracy Coalition, partners for democracy day advocacy work of more than 100 democracy organizations from around the world committed to advance and protect democracy worldwide and to influence the Summits for Democracy and the Year of Action 2022.

The Global Democracy Coalition enables partner organizations to have a stronger voice in influencing the Summits for Democracy and the global democracy agenda more broadly, as part of a collective effort rather than as individual organizations.
