Preventing SGBV in work and political spaces
SGBV is a deterrent to women’s work and political participation, rights and processes, and policy outcomes suffer from the underrepresentation of women decision-makers. The implications of Gender Motivated Political Violence in politics and the world of work have short- and long-term negative effects on women’s workplace and political engagement,
such as dissuading many young women from pursuing politics as a career and seeking leadership in their workplaces.
Usawa Inc works with networks of politicians, industry leaders, journalists and activists to lift the conspiracy of silence around SGBV in work and political spaces.
