“The NYOU Parliament” is a project developed and managed by fiftyfifty and supported by the Kingdom of the Netherlands’ Embassy in Beirut. The program aims at creating a non-sectarian female political environment and increasing female representation in the Lebanese parliament through the following main actions:
- Create a female platform that will encourage and support more women to run for office in the next national elections
- Raise awareness on the benefits of engaging women in politics
- Increase visibility of participants in their communities and political sphere
- Build a new parliament with gender equality by instating a gender quota of 33% at least.
