Outline

Women's participation in the political arena is still limited, especially for grassroots and marginalized women. Women is still underrepresented in district and legislative councils; ( less than the UN standard of 30% ) and women issues are often regarded as secondary to the political parties and politicians. This project is timely in responding to 2015 district council election. Short videos, social media and community forums will be held, in order to voice out issues that women concerned and empower them to influence the agenda in the district councils in the coming 4 years.
