About Women in Elections (WIE)

Centre for Peace and Development Initiative (CPDI) with the support of IFES has developed a central, online portal for women in elections that is interactive; and provides a one-stop destination for information that pertains specifically to women’s rights and electoral and political participation. This online resource will help women to overcome challenges they face when trying to access reliable, neutral and informative voter and civic information.

The ‘Women in Elections’ website is housed on the PakVoter portal. Developed in partnership with CPDI and IFES, PakVoter is the first online forum to provide impartial information on Pakistan’s elections and is a trusted resource on elections and electoral processes throughout Pakistan. Additionally, PakVoter uses a life-span approach targeting all age groups and segments of the society, as well as utilizing an accessible platform that enables people with disabilities to have control over certain website components, such as increasing the text size and changing the background color for easier readability.

“Women in Elections” includes statistics on women in elections in Pakistan; information on women’s quotas at all stages of elected government; messages related to the importance of women’s democratic participation; and women-focused voter information that highlights key information women need in order to register for their national identity card and cast a ballot on Election Day.

WIE is all about becoming an information house for empowering women in elections.
