DescriptionThe ‘Women in Elections (WiE)’ project collects and provides information on women inclusion into the political and electoral process in Pakistan. It establishes a portal, which hosts information on multifarious phases of women participation and struggle in politics. The unique features of the portal allow information from far-reaching and credible sources on women in leadership and on the ladder of success, while focusing on women political rights. It also includes information about the steps taken by the government of Pakistan to promote women inclusion into political mainstream. In addition, it hosts resources, including laws and rules, about women political participation across SAARC countries, so as to facilitate and enrich debate on good practices across countries and whether some of those could be replicated in Pakistan.
