Modalities, Conditions, Advantages, Disadvantages and Experiences of Setting up an All-women Political Party

Women's political parties have been observed in countries across the globe such as Afghanistan, Armenia, Belarus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Georgia, Greece, Iceland, Iran, India, Lithuania, Northern Ireland, Poland, and Russia. While their success has been varied, in many places they have prompted a discussion on women's rights and roles in a country's political system

This consolidated response will first discuss the reasons that would necesitate setting up an all-women’s political party. It will then examine the pre-conditions (socioeconomic and legal) and practical considerations when setting up such a party, with a look at experiences of countries or regions where this has worked or the challenges they experienced in order to draw lessons from them. It concludes with a summary of what this means going forward.
