Structures to improve Gender Equity


Structures and rules within Green parties improve how women can participate and hold leadership positions in the party. The structures can be in the Constitution, Rules, Bylaws or operational policies of the Party so that all the members know what they must do to help improve Gender Equity.

It is our goal that every APGF member Party will have provisions  in its Rules or Bylaws for the participation, decision making and leadership of women in the Party and as candidates.  This includes systems for the recruitment and training of women in all areas of the party process and political process and training for all party members on bullying, discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment.  These tools will make a real difference to women in the party.
