Apparently, they are to use the platform to promote good leadership. They also hope to use it to have collective advocacy on issues affecting women in the country.
Among the parties that are part of the IWOP is the ruling NRM party. The others also include Uganda Federal Alliance, the Alliance for National Transformation, JEEMA, FDC, Democratic Party, Uganda Federal Alliance, among others.
The MOU signed will also ensure that issues affecting women in leadership positions are addressed effectively.
The International Republican institute and the Women Democracy Network Uganda Chapter facilitated the launch of the platform.
The NRM Women’s League chairperson, Lydia Wanyoto urged women to work together. She said this will help protect the gains that have so far been made on the political front.
She made these remarks while speaking at the launch of the platform. Furthermore, she warned them against complacency and embrace a healthy political competition.
“If you choose the political path of leadership and aspirations, it is tough and fluctuates. Be aware of this. It is very difficult to maintain political ranks and the path is not clear. It is tough and always get tough. In politics there is no clear cut growth. Keep firm and keep going. If you have chosen to be a woman politician you have to keep relevant, strong, resilient and remain visible,” Wanyoto said.
Many notables were present at the launch, some being famous activists like Dr. Miria Matembe. She also emphasized the need for women to work together to overcome challenges they face.
