The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how vital it is to have women making decisions, protecting and defending their communities.
To ensure women’s priorities and solutions are considered in decision-making, women must be represented in leadership positions.
But across Asia and the Pacific where IWDA works, women still face many barriers to leadership: conservative beliefs about women’s roles, physical and sexual violence, structural inequality and lack of funding for women-led organisations.
