Our aim in this report is to provide an analysis of women’s participation in African politics and to help to fill the void in election reporting in the international development field. By incorporating a range of perspectives and sources to reveal achievements and obstacles to women’s political empowerment, we hope to provide a platform for feminist views and voices of parties and voters from across Africa’s social, economic and public life.
The Political Participation Team has worked hard to provide accurate data and reporting and we will continue to improve and enhance our research in reports that come in 2013. As resources are limited and the team is small, our ability to instantly update information is hindered. Nonetheless, it is important to note that MEWC is one of the only outlets for election information specifically focused on women's issues and their participation and we
hope to continue and expand this important work in the years to come.
