Washington, D.C. -- Today the National Democratic Institute (NDI) has released its preliminary survey findings from assessments of violence against women in political parties in four countries. The No Party to Violence: Political Party Assessment builds on NDI’s recent review of 21st-century political parties and is part of NDI’s #NotTheCost campaign to end violence against politically active women around the globe.


NDI is shocked and saddened by the tragic death of Marielle Franco, a councilwoman in Rio de Janeiro, who was shot in the head four times this week as she traveled home from a public event. Franco, an outspoken critic of police brutality in Brazil, was also a prominent advocate for Afro-Brazilians. “How many more will have to die for this war to end?” she asked on Twitter the day before she and her driver were gunned down.

NDI Ukraine's latest nationwide survey (completed in December 2017) showed several important trends, including growing support for gender equality in political life. For the first time, more than half of Ukrainians (52 percent) support the equal participation of men and women – or more women than men – in political life.
