womenleaders.gif (258637 bytes)"In order for any nation to achieve its full economic, social and political potential, all of her citizens must have an equal opportunity to participate in the democratic process."

-Barbara Ferris, IWDC Founder & President

The International Women's Democracy Center was established to strengthen women's global leadership through training, education, networking and research in all facets of democracy with a particular focus on increasing the participation of women in policy, politics and decision-making within their own governments.
