Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, UN Women works towards the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations System efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
Promoting women’s political participation is one of UN Women’s primary areas of work, in recognition of the integral role of women in strong and stable democratic processes. To strengthen the leadership and participation of women in decision-making processes, UN Women works to promote gender equality in legislatures at all levels, electoral processes, and political institutions, contributing to the entity’s achievement of UN Women SP UN-Women Strategic Plan 2022-2025 Impact Area 1, Participation and Governance in Public Life: Women and girls participate in leadership and decision making and benefit from gender responsive governance. These efforts are designed to guide countries towards reaching Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 5.5: “ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life.”
In Liberia, UN Women, in collaboration with key stakeholders such as the National Elections Commission, Women’s Legislative Caucus of Liberia, Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection, and local civil society organizations (CSOs), has been implementing interventions focused on norm change, advocacy for the adoption of temporary special measures, capacity building and dialogue to promote women’s participation. One of our key intervention areas is the creation of a safe and enabling environment for women participating in politics, including strengthening the prevention and response of violence against women in politics (VAWP). As it is an obstacle to the realization of women’s civic and political rights and negatively affects the participation of women as voters, candidates, activists, campaign staff and volunteers, election officials, and political party leaders and undermines free, fair, and inclusive democratic processes, and threatens electoral integrity.
To this effect, UN Women in collaboration with National Elections Commission developed Violence Against Women in Politics and Election Protocol currently signed by 29 out of 36 registered political parties in Liberia. Considering the upcoming presidential and legislative elections, that will take place in October 2023, UN Women Liberia in collaboration with local partners had been making efforts to raise awareness and strengthen political will for the implementation of the Protocol through programs such as the Liberia Electoral Support Program (LESP) and Promoting Inclusive Political Participation and the Elimination of Violence Against Women program, in partnership with the United Nations Development Program, the Governments of Sweden and Ireland and the UN Secretary General’s Peacebuilding Fund.
