Democracy Talk: Promoting Gender Equality in Democracy

29 Sep 2021

A timely conversation with U.S. and Swedish foreign policy leaders to discuss the links between gender equality and democracy, share efforts to implement whole-of-government responses, and strategize the way forward to advance gains for all. Featuring Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde.

Protecting and promoting women in democracy is a global imperative. Research shows that gender equality and democracy are mutually reinforcing; women’s political participation results in greater responsiveness to citizen needs and a marked increase in civil rights and political liberties. However, significant challenges remain, and as democracy comes under attack around the world, so too does gender equality.
