Demonstrating Legislative Leadership: The Introduction of Rwanda’s Gender-Based Violence Bill

What can be learnt from the work of Rwanda’s female parliamentarians?

This report by the Initiative for Inclusive Security reviews the literature concerning women’s participation in politics. It considers the issue of gender-based violence in Rwanda and the role of women in Rwanda’s government. Factors behind the successful development of the gender-based violence (GBV) law included soliciting input from constituents and maintaining close relationships with civil society. Women parliamentarians’ participatory model of leadership and lawmaking has contributed significantly to improving governance in Rwanda.
