NYU Washington, DC and the National Democratic Institute (NDI) hosted the launch of NDI's Women’s Political Participation Risk Index, and a safety planning tool to help women who are or intend to become politically-active, to mitigate the threat of violence that they face.

As more women step forward and engage in political activity, there is a rising backlash against their equal participation. This is an abuse of human and civic rights, and the exclusion of women undermines the quality of democracy.

Speakers for the evening included Dr. Madeleine K. Albright, NDI Chairman and Former Secretary of State, Farida Bemba Nabourema, Executive Director at Togolese Civil League, Sandra Pepera, Director for Gender, Women and Democracy at NDI, Dr. Mona Lena Krook, Professor at Rutgers University, Geoff Hughes, Director for Global Security and Operations at NDI, and Shari Bryan, Vice President at NDI.
