We simply cannot afford to wait for the world to be equal
to start feeling seen , heard and respected

According to the Interparliamentary Union, Nigeria currently ranks 183 out of 193 on women’s representation across parliament at a dismal 4.1%. The 2019 general elections produced only 8 female senators out of 109, and 11 female House of Representatives out of 360. The regressive trend in women’s political leadership in Nigeria presents dire consequences to policy design, implementation and outcomes which invariably affects the overall health of the economy. ElectHER recognizes the need for an end-to-end eco system that will support female candidates to competitively decide, run and win elections. We simply cannot afford to wait for the world to be equal to start feeling seen!

Agender35 is a non-partisan comprehensive campaign by ElectHER with an ultimate goal to de-risk the process of running for elective office and provide critical social, human and financial infrastructure that will ensure a critical shift in women’s political leadership in Nigeria by 2023.
