Finding a work-life balance for women in politics

Over the last decade, iKNOW Politics spoke with women leaders around the world on challenges for women in politics. Women interviewed spoke openly about the difficulties of combining a political career and taking care of a family; on how they tried to find a work-life balance; how support from other family members is crucial to succeed in politics; how difficult it is to leave their families in their villages, when traveling around in their constituencies to speak with voters or to be a thousand of miles away from their family to be present in the national assemblies.
