VSO releases "Women in Power: beyond access to influence in a post-2015 world"

in WORLD, 13/09/2013

VSO releases a new report, "Women in Power: beyond access to influence in a post-2015 world", putting a spotlight on gender inequality at all levels of society. It draws on the experiences of VSO volunteers and women’s rights campaigners from around the world to provide real-life stories that illustrate some of the barriers women face in political participation.

VSO calculates that at current rates of progress it will take 120 YEARS before women make up half of world leaders and more than 50 YEARS until women are equally represented in the world’s parliaments.
