Gender in Action
May 23, 2015
IWDA’s Funding Leadership Opportunities for Women program has supported women in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands to become involved with their local councils. More women are being employed by councils to assist in the development of gender sensitive and sexual harassment policies. These progressive measures offer frameworks to support the rights of thousands of women once implemented.
In 2014, 23 women worked with local councils, driving gender equity at a local level.
