What's New at NDI Gender, Women and Democracy (GWD):


NDI's annual Madeleine K. Albright lunch, celebrating women's political leadership around the world, was on May 18. At the lunch, our Chairman, former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright presented this year's Madeleine K. Albright Grant to the Macedonian organization Reactor for their work to support women in politics. You can read more about their work and their plans for the award here. At the luncheon Senator Amy Klobuchar gave inspiring remarks about the power of women working together to create change, and our 2016 Andi Parhamovich Fellow, Sehrish Naseem also gave special remarks about her experience working with NDI to empower women in Pakistan.


Violence should never be the cost of politics -- and our campaign to make sure it isn't was launched at our #NotTheCost Conference on March 17th in New York City. Register for a copy of our Call to Action, which provides practical tools for stopping violence against women in politics, and join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #NotTheCost.
