This animation is based on the findings of a project that explored barriers to women’s political leadership in Tanintharyi region, Dawei, Myanmar, and made recommendations to improve the situation and thereby contribute to more inclusive democracy. Using a mixed-methods approach, the team examined the factors that help and hinder women in their bid to become parliamentarians and political leaders; how they are perceived in the male-dominated political domain; and what can be done to further develop women’s political participation. This short animation highlights the main findings. To find out more about the research see:
