Less Corruption & Fairer Elections

Corruption in elections is a global issue, and Young Women Leaders in the Philippines decided to tackle it head-on. They led a massive mobilization of youth for responsible voting in mid-term elections to help ensure that the will of the people was reflected in the results and that young women were acknowledged as leaders with valuable input in the process. Efforts to promote youth involvement in politics and de-stigmatizing gender identities are an ongoing focus of this YWL chapter.
