Empowering Women in Politics and Decision-Making in Muslim Countries



March 6, 2007 - Mrs. Salwa Kader, President of USFMEP, moderated this side event which explored the increasing public role of women in Muslim countries. Women play an integral role in politics all over the world and their presence in policymaking and decision-making areas is of great importance. Muslim countries are becoming more and more willing to allow the voices of women to be heard. As a result, the women in these countries must have the vital resources and information available in order for them to make effective decisions and invoke change.
