Women in Politics: Challenging Backward Social Institutions

Eradicating sexist social customs that hinder the participatory role of women in politics is extremely important.

Providing a safe and secure place for women to work productively and contribute to the society is a key factor in promoting gender equality. It is important to educate, inform and mobilize audiences—collectively and individually—to build and adopt new patterns of masculinity and femininity and to encourage new behaviors about partner and family roles. Women’s political empowerment should be in tandem with women’s social empowerment so that the nation, as a whole, can benefit in multifold aspects. International institutions challenging stereotypical patterns of masculinity and femininity should be established to empower women.

Backward social institutions and cultural practices that restrict women should be no longer valid in the twentieth century.
