Women on the Move

Telling the stories of the women who move us forward.

The Women in Public Service Project is pleased to present our video series Women on the Move. These brief interviews highlight the women around the world who are driving the movement toward global gender parity in policy and political leadership. We hope their stories will inspire women leaders and champions for gender parity.
