Gender Equality in Elected Office: Applying the Six Step Action Plan to the Egyptian case

Women and Public Policy Program, Harvard Kennedy School This session asks participants to consider applying the Six Step Action Plan to a country in the midst of revolutionary change as one specific case study — Egypt. In particular, participants will be asked to consider what they would recommend, using examples learned from their own experiences. The process of rapid political change in Egypt, notably the new constitution, which is currently being debated, provides important opportunities to empower women, but there are no guarantees that these opportunities will be seized, and many fear conservative restrictions on women’s rights. What course of action would you recommend? Speaker: Pippa Norris, Lecturer in Comparative Politics, Harvard Kennedy School Date: September 6, 2012
