WEIN Programme - Governance  

As a result of patriarchy and years of interaction with cultural and traditional ideologies, the system of governance in the country has been gender insensitive (mostly gender-blind) with women not being accorded equal opportunities, power, access and control over resources.
Presently, women occupy only 5% of legislative seats in states and at the national level.

WEIN NIGERIA hope to enhance the participation of women in decision making process in all level of governance.
