The training by CEEC on Combating Electoral Gender Based Violence through Positive Masculinities and Femininities gave me an opportunity to share my experience in politics with other women aspiring to join political leadership. The most important lesson was that whereas women face multiple barriers in their quest to earn political seats, they can overcome the barriers and take up leadership positions by ignoring the naysayers, participating in decision making processes, working with male allies and supporting fellow women in political leadership.
