Focus Group Findings on Perceptions on Women in Georgian Politics

From June 18–21, 2012, IFES worked with the Institute of Social Studies and Analysis (ISSA), a Tbilisi–based research organization, to conduct eight focus groups across Georgia to better understand the perceptions, opinions and perceived obstacles women face as political candidates and elected officials. Findings indicate that while both men and women are open to voting for either men or women candidates based on their qualifications, greater participation of women in Georgian politics is challenged by societal assumptions on the role of women.
