The Young Women in Politics Forum was launched on Monday September 11, 2017 under the auspices of the Nigerian Women Trust Fund. Young women drawn from all works of life, 17 political parties and across the 36 states including the FCT attended the launch including other young women and mentees in the Fund’s Young Women Leaders Project and Young Women Mentorship Program. Also in attendance were young women who had built social capital across different fields of endeavours and Civil Society Organizations. The launch was made possible with support from DFID-Voices4Change and National Endowment for Democracy. The Young Women in Politics Forum will mirror the Women in Politics Forum (WIPF) with a youth edge, focused on young women in politics across political divides between the age of 18 and 35.
