Gender Barometer: How do Women and Men Participate in Politics and Decision-Making?
The Gender Barometer is the first comprehensive study in Moldova that addresses women's and men's involvement in politics and decision-making. The study was aimed to elucidate gender-specific challenges in politics (the general attitude towards the involvement of men and women in politics, in the life of the political parties, their intention to run, the specific challenges of the candidates, both men and women, in the election process, the activity of the local elected politician), as the decision making process (the level of information on the community development process, the local development priorities, the involvement on different stages of the decision making process). The research was carried out by the Partnership for Development Center, under the UN "Women in politics", program. The program is implemented by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in partnership with The East European Foundation and the Partnership for Development Center, with the financial support of the Swedish Government.
