Crucial time for women’s participation in decision making in Myanmar
May 20, 2016
As Myanmar embarks on a new era of democracy, it now more important than ever to include women in decision making according to Caitlin Pierce, Namati’s Myanmar Program Officer.
“In every society, gender equality in decision-making is crucial to achieve policies that are sensitive to the different experiences and needs of men and women. While the mere physical presence of women in governance bodies does not ensure representation of women’s interests per se, it vastly improves the likelihood,” she said.
