ZNWLG

The Zambia National Women's Lobby Group was formed in 1991 and works to increase women's participation at all levels of decision making.

The posted an interesting statistic showing how women's participation in Parliament remained relatively stable between the early '70s to the early '90s (around 4%). In the late-90s, however -- after the NNWLG really got off the ground -- female participation in Parliament more than doubled (10.6%).

Their ultimate goal is 50/50 political representation.
