The research project examines four strategies to promote democratic governance, women's rights and gender equality. First, women's political leadership is explored for the extent to which it creates greater governmental will and capacity to more actively and effectively transform gender relations both within and outside of the state. Second, quota systems are assessed for their impact on effective women's participation and leadership in representative government. Third, the usefulness of National Gender Policy documents for promoting gender equality is evaluated. Finally, the impact of feminist movement-building on women's capacity to be effective transformational leaders within democratic political life is investigated.
