By training women in IT and media and giving them a space for discussion, WOMEC is working actively to strengthen the role of the female leaders and is developing the leadership of the women yet to take action in their communities
Empowering women to take a more central role in decision making through Voter Education, Gender Training and Presentation Skills
Supporting female Parliamentarians to effectively use the media to advance their cause
Building the capacity of journalists to play active roles as change agents and advocates for gender equality
Encouraging the women’s NGO to voice out their actions and concerns, via the media and through public events
Developing the global image of the Ghanaian female leaders
Running an online global exchange with other female leaders in the world
Create a space where the women from the community meet the female parliamentarians and NGO leaders on a regular basis, expressing issues of concern and getting inspired by the powerful role of the women they meet

The Female Parliamentarian

Give an online space for global exchange and debate to the Women

  • Establishing an exchange program for female journalists in Africa to enable them share experiences, ideas and learn from each other.
  • Serving as a centre of excellence that focuses on the training, capacity building and create a platform for exchange of ideas and facilitates networking of media women in the sub-region for female journalists;
  • Developing a database on women in the media in Africa which will hold information on the human resources of female journalists in Africa;
  • Establishing a resource centre for female journalists to learn new skills and access information;
  • Developing a mentorship program between young female journalists and the older experienced journalists in the West African sub-region;

The interest in pursuing  the agenda of promoting women in governance and political processes and structures is underscored by the fact that women constitute more than half Ghana’s population, yet their issues and concerns are often largely absent from mainstream  decision-making.

Of equal concern is the fact though women are interested in contributing effectively to the decisions that affect their lives and societies, they are generally constrained from doing so due to the several socio-economic barriers that confront and discriminate against them on a day-to-day basis.

Journalists realised that progress for women is progress for all.  They realised that the use of quotas could also be an important instrument for breaking down barriers and furthering women’s political participation and integration.  More so, the key role of political parties in identifying, grooming and enhancing women’s participation in the decision-making process is very important.
