Women are running for public office in growing numbers. They have currently reached an average of 18.4 per cent of seats in national assemblies, exceeding 30 per cent of representatives in national assemblies in 22 countries. A core element of women’s organising worldwide has been the focus on political processes in order to shape public policy-making and democratize power relations. Women are using their votes to strengthen their leverage as members of interest groups, including groups with an interest in gender equality.
