Women Can Do It

Women Can Do It

Women Can Do It (WCDI) is a training program for women originated in the Norwegian Labor Party Women. The aim of "Women Can Do it” is to make more women participate in society and to give the Palestinian and Lebanese women to express their opinion in different issues and to get their rights. The program's ideal is that because women make up half the world's population, they should have half the power and as many formal positions and authority as men. This is not the fact at present. Women are systematically under-represented in decision-making positions around the world, less visible in the media, hold fewer parliamentary seats and occupy fewer leading posts in political parties than men.

Funded by the Norwegian People’s Aid, the project started in Lebanon in 2007 by giving training to trainers from the partner organizations which are the National Institution of Social Care and Vocational Training (Beit Atfal Assumoud), General Union of Palestinian Women Norway, Lebanese Democratic Women Gathering, Al Najdah Association, Lebanese League for Women's Rights, Lebanese Association for Democratic Elections, and The Popular Aid For Relief and Development.
