The Political and Civic Engagement of Somali Women

The Mogadishu-based Heritage Institute for Policy Studies published in April 2015 a study titled "The Political and Civic Engagement of Somali Women."

It concluded that Somali women engage in a wide spectrum of civic and political activities ranging from holding political office to performing community-based activism and taking care of extended relatives.  Given that the Somali region is undergoing rapid social and political transformation, Somali women's contributions are crucial to development, healing, and peace building at all levels of society.
