WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP PROJECT

Introduction

Gender Centre commenced work on its 4-year Women in Leadership Project. The Project is

being implemented in the Wenchi, Atwima Mponua and Ada East districts of the country and also has a national level component. The expected outcomes are:

  1. Increased numbers of women actively and effectively participating in political parties and decision-making structures at national and local levels.
  2. Improved accountability of decision-making structures to their female constituents.
  3. Womankind and its partner organizations strengthened to play a leadership role on issues of women’s political participation and effectively bridge the gap between communities and decision making structures.

Key project activities include building the capacity of 45 women and 60 young women through a number of training programmes to enable them take up leadership positions at

various levels. Two training programmes will be held each year for the next three years. The 60 young women to be trained will be selected from second cycle and tertiary institutions.

The Gender Studies and Human Rights Documentation Centre (Gender Centre) continues to work towards its vision of a society where women’s rights are fully promoted and protected, and where they are able to participate in national development at all levels.

Women form over 50% of the total population of Ghana hence their full involvement in civil, political, economic, social, cultural and any other field is critical to Ghana’s full development. The Gender Centre therefore continues to work on those issues that subjugate women and deny them their rights to full citizenship.

Violence against women and the underlying ideology of patriarchy continue to be one of the problem areas for women’s empowerment. The research undertaken by the Gender Centre in 2006/7 has also established quite clearly the link between violence, gender norms and HIV infection.

‘This report gives an insight in the various programmes that we are implementing, together with our partners, to reduce the incidence of violence as well as reduce women’s susceptibility to HIV infection as a result of gender inequality and increase their participation in decision -making. Working with multi stakeholders and partners,

District Assemblies, state agencies (the Police, Social Welfare, CHRAJ), traditional and religious leaders, NGOs, CBOs and community members is yielding positive results in our target communities. It is our hope that we will be able to expand our activities to many more communities in the years ahead.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all our partners at community, district, national and international levels for their cooperation and support during 2010 and hope that we can continue to enjoy the support in the coming year.
