Women in Political Parties: Deconstructing Myths. 2017
The research examines the obstacles faced by Georgian women while striving for a political career and dispels some existing myths on women’s political participation. Its conclusions are based on a qualitative survey, conducted among top and middle management of parliamentary political parties in Georgia – “Georgian Dream”, “United National Movement”, “European Georgia” and “Patriots’ Alliance of Georgia”, in March – May 2017. The qualitative data is complemented with the reports of personal experiences of female politicians and activists.
The research is commissioned by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Government of Sweden, and carried out by a Georgian non-governmental organization “Union Sapari” under the UN Joint Programme “For Gender Equality”.
