Citizenship and Political Participation Program

Women have traditionally been excluded from political decision-making spaces, which is why it is necessary to promote their participation and representation in this sphere, to make it possible for them, in dialogue with local and regional authorities, to propose, specify and monitor actions that contribute to a life free of violence and with equal rights. This program strengthened among leaders and socially excluded groups, capacities for effective citizen and political participation from a gender perspective, while involving and mobilizing public institutions and social organizations in function of this purpose.
