Around the world, women face countless barriers to political participation. In this episode, you will hear from women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic and Kosovo, all of whom are engaged in politics. One works to ensure women’s meaningful participation in politics, another serves as a parliamentarian, and the other is a pioneering journalist who has built a career holding politicians to account. The interviews in this podcast reflect the views of the participants and the United Nations does not necessarily endorse nor support the language used or views expressed.
