NDI has taken a leading role in documenting and tackling the issue of Violence Against Women in Political Parties (VAW-PP). Over the past two years, through its No Party to Violence initiative, NDI conducted research with 25 political parties in Côte d’Ivoire, Honduras, Tanzania, and Tunisia. Compiled in collaboration with one of the leading experts on violence targeting politically active women, Dr. Mona Lena Krook, this compendium report offers the first ever systematic data and analysis of the types, levels, and impact of violence against women within these institutions. The report confirms the discouraging impact on women’s political leadership ambitions that such violence has, robbing parties and politics of a key resource, underscoring the urgent need to address the issue.
