National campaign to boost women participation in local governance

The Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights held the first conference of a series of activities that are part of the ´´National Awareness Campaign Regarding the Elections of Local Councils”. The conference was held in Beni Suef governorate in November 2018 in cooperation with the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

This conference aims at raising awareness and educating the local communities across Egypt about the importance of participating in the upcoming local elections, focusing on the role of youth and women and their participation in the elections. The conference comes within the framework of a national campaign involving women and youth trained in the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights on women’s rights and political participation, in order to encourage citizens to participate in the elections.

The conference also tackled the role of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in organizing conferences and activities to encourage young men and women to participate in the upcoming local elections throughout the Egyptian Republic.
