SANA’A – Promoting civic participation among women got a boost this week with the launch of a new social media tool.  With the assistance of the United States Government (USG), Yemeni women launched their own “Emtinan’s List,” modeled after the iconic “Emily’s List” in the U.S., to provide ongoing consultative support to women candidates and political campaigns.  The launch of Emtinan’s List culminates a week-long Women’s Leadership Program (WLP) implemented by the USG’s U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and USAID partner the National Democratic Institute (NDI). 

Emtinan’s List is part of a broader effort to increase Yemeni citizen engagement in and understanding of processes related to Yemen’s ongoing political transition by providing women with additional tools and individualized support tailored to candidates’ unique challenges within their parties and the newly proposed electoral system.
