One of the key objectives of WIN (Women in Networking) is to spearhead the transformation of politics in Mauritius to lead to doubling the number of women in Parliament by 2015.

Despite the huge economic progress that has been made in Mauritius since Independence in 1968, Mauritius still lags behind many African countries in terms of gender equality and female representation in decision making. While Mauritius is held up as an example of democracy in Africa, with one of the oldest democracies in the region, the female population of Mauritius, approximately 52% of the total population, is largely disenfranchised when it comes to participating in the decision making process at all levels in our society

WIN has therefore set up WOMEN IN POLITICS (WIP).
