Driving change to ensure that women play a full role in the democratic process is a significant part of EED’s work and a cross-cutting issue that is taken into account across all initiatives. EED is strongly committed to developing gender equality in democracy building and sponsors a large number of organisations that address women’s issues.

Overview of EED support

EED funds female leaders, activists and organisations to advance political participation of women, empower women in democratic decision-making, tackle discrimination, and raise awareness of issues such as exploitation and violence against women. Around one-quarter of all EED funded initiatives include a specific component related to gender.
