Gender Equality in Political Leadership and Participation in Turkey brochure
Achieving the goal of gender equality, particularly with respect to women’s political participation and leadership, needs to become a key priority in Turkey. Women's participation to politics both at local and national levels has not advanced significantly yet. UN Women Turkey works to empower women leaders to enable women’s equitable representation in politics and government which is a prerequisite for real change. “Gender Equality in Political Leadership and Participation in Turkey” project, funded by Sweden through Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), aims at supporting women’s political leadership and participation in decision-making processes in Turkey.
