Women Less Corrupt – Boosting Number Of Female MPs Will Clean Up Governance

On the heels of celebrating International Women’s Day, I am urging Jamaica’s major political parties to increase female participation in politics as a means of reducing political corruption. 

I am also encouraging legislators to work with partners such as the United Nations, the Inter-Parliamentary Union, non-governmental organisations, and academic institutions to conduct further research into the effect of gender balance in politics and efforts to fight corruption.
