Promoting participation of women in non-government organizations

  • Strengthening participation of women in associations


The number of women holding influential positions in the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Cress Societies has increased in recent years, and partially as a consequence of the adoption of the Federation's Plan of Action, Women in Development. For instance, from 1990 to 1993, women in influential positions in the Federation's Secretariat Management Group increased from zero to 29%, at the Head of Department/Service level from 9 to 21%, and at the Senior Delegate, Relief and Development level from 6 to 20%.
