For many years, women provided the backbone of voluntary workers in our political parties – be they in separate women’s sections or in the main body of the party. However, over the past years their role has changed. Today, female leaders play a significant role in ensuring that our parties are in tune with policies of special concern to women and in ensuring that we address female voters appropriately, eventually helping to increase their share of our parties’ votes. Women play a unique role in our societies contributing to our well-being, both as home makers and working women. We believe that AATSW may contribute to a fruitful exchange on shared issues for women in politics. We want to help them in addressing existing prejudices in our societies that continuously keep qualified women from realizing their full potential.
