Project Name : Elimination of Violence against Women (EVAW) in Political and Social Life

Contributing to the goals of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, the Bayan program will be focused on indirectly working towards reducing violence against women and ensuring more effective political participation of women. In order to achieve this impact, Bayan II will directly work towards the long term outcomes of 1) creating an increasingly responsive security sector – responsive to the needs of women and to the necessary inclusion of a greater number of women; and 2) more qualified female politicians.
