Women Propose Campaign Encourages Women’s Participation in Elections

A continuation of KWN’s earlier Political Parties Work for Women Campaign, the Women Propose Campaign continued to promote greater and more effective participation of women in the fall 2004 elections, both as voters and as candidates from all political parties. The campaign consisted of a series of public meetings that brought together women candidates and citizens in each municipality. Violeta Selimi was the Campaign Coordinator. The campaign was supported by OSCE and the Swiss Cooperation and Development Office (SCDO), with technical assistance from STAR Network of World Learning and UNIFEM.
