This paper is one of several analytical documents synthesizing the findings across Promoting Women in Development (PROWID) projects and their implications within the various theme areas. As detailed in this synthesis paper, the full involvement of women in political and economic arenas is gaining ground as a legitimate goal, as well as a litmus test of the degree to which democracy has been attained.
