Put women there

Eight CBOs to Undertake “Put Women There, 2023 Elections” Advocacy Initiative

Monrovia-Ahead of the 2023 General and Presidential Elections in Liberia, forty (40) women from Eight (8) woman-led Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) under a Memorandum of Understanding have vowed sustained advocacy on women’s leadership and representation; to have more women elected in the upcoming elections.

The CBOs under their advocacy initiative “Put Women There, 2023 Elections,” seek to increase awareness of the importance of women’s leadership at the National Legislature and local government structures, which they believe will sensitize the citizenry to elect women in the October 10 polls.

The advocacy activities will be visible in Nimba, Lofa, Bong, and Grand Gedeh Counties, where the Institute for Research and Democratic Development (IREDD), Women NGO Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL), and Sister Aid Liberia (SALI) under a consortium have signed the MOU with the CBOs and built the capacities of the members (10 per County) of the Eight (8) CBOs in advocacy and citizens’ engagement; and sharpened their skills in preparation to undertake advocacy initiatives within the four Counties.
