On 14-17 July, 2015, Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation, in co-operation with International Republican Institute (IRI), organized two conferences with local female politicians from Georgia. The participants who came from different regions of the country, and represented the opposition party, United National Movement (UNM), gathered in the Georgian village, Chakvi to discuss strategies for the future.

The UNM women’s network is one of the most prominent and best organized in Georgia, and thanks to its efforts, women have reached higher positions in the party, especially on the local level.
