This report provides a comprehensive analysis of men and women party members' perceptions of violence against women in their political parties in Côte d'Ivoire, Honduras, Tanzania, and Tunisia. It represents the first ever systematic analysis of the types, levels, and impact of violence against women in political parties.
Taking the opportunity provided by its 2017 review of political party strengthening, "Reflect, Reform, Re-engage: A Blueprint for 21st Century Parties," NDI has revised its long-standing Win With Women political party assessment tool, including by adding guidance on measuring levels of and dealing with the violence that women members face within their parties.
An open democratic space requires inclusive political processes supported by a free media that operates with integrity. This guide is a compilation of best practices and lessons learned and serves as a resource to help women in politics and women in the media use the media safely and effectively. It is the product of an innovative program partnership between NDI's Gender, Women and Democracy team and the International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF).
“VAW-P damages the political profiles of women, ultimately their success - not only those on the ballot and in political office but also voters, electoral officials, civil society activists - fundamentally all those who are involved in political and public life.“
Ambassador Nancy Soderberg, Senior Country Director, NDI Kosovo
