Women's Political Participation and Leadership Assessment: Ecuador Report

This study investigates the barriers and opportunities to expand women’s participation and leadership in the political landscape in Ecuador. It uses the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID’s) WPPL Assessment Framework to document women’s access to and power in politics along sociocultural, institutional, and individual dimensions. The report can be used by the relevant stakeholders to identify priority areas where their investments in programs and initiatives to support WPPL are likely to have the greatest and most meaningful impact.
