 In 2016, NDI launched the #NotTheCost campaign – a global call to action to raise awareness to stop violence against women in politics. The campaign’s title reflects the fact that many women are told that harassment, threats, psychological abuse (in person and online), physical and sexual assault are “the cost of doing politics.” The #NotTheCost Call to Action plan aims to help foster political environments that encourage women’s participation in all aspects of democratic politics — as civic leaders, voters, political party members, candidates, elected representatives and appointed officials — in their own voices and conscience, without fear of violence or the threat of reprisals, to the benefit of all of us.
