Promoting Women's Participation in the Political Domain

FEM-ABLE project, Co-funded by the Citizens, Equality, Rights & Values Programme of the European Union, is an ambitious initiative aimed at promoting gender equality in political decision-making. The FEM-ABLE project partner organisations based in Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden, are taking a proactive approach to address the underrepresentation of women in politics at all levels: local, national, and European.

The FEM-ABLE project's overarching goal is to develop evidence-based national strategies to enhance gender equality in politics. We are working to investigate and understand the underlying causes of women's lower political power scores. Our commitment extends to finding innovative ways to encourage and support women's participation in politics, with a focus on those who hold or aspire to hold key political positions.

Our ambitions and objectives for the FEM-ABLE project are aligned with recent EU policy initiatives and grounded in academic literature. We aim to create a research-based resources, including the development national strategies that promote equality in political decision-making, emphasizing sharing best practices and providing impact assessment tools to monitor the effectiveness of these strategies. We are dedicated to collaborating with local political parties and national authorities involved in gender equality, integrating our research findings into national policies through dialogues, conferences, and roundtables.
