This report developed by Voz di Paz - Initiative for Peacebuilding and Interpeace wants to show the true picture of women involved in decision-making in Guinea-Bissau. It aims to contribute to a better understanding of women’s situation in this domain, and to document the issue in all its complexity and comprehensiveness, complementing previous analyses.
The participative and inclusive approach of this research offers new perspectives based on an intense series of interactions with a diverse set of key actors, including participants who either create, reproduce, fight against or suffer as a result of the limited participation of women in decision-making. The interviews provided the population of Guinea-Bissau with a unique opportunity to speak out, engage with each other, analyse and look for tentative solutions about this topic that concerns all Bissau-Guineans. It aims to function as a mirror reflecting various aspects of the actual situation, with their limitations and possibilities.
