Elected Women Representatives (EWRs) gather outside Middle School Harka in Sitamarhi district to discuss community issues. Women's equal participation in governance and leadership roles are a step towards building stronger communities and improving reproductive health services at village, block, and district levels. A program called Women Leading Change supports the EWRs; it was developed by the Centre for Catalyzing Change (C3), an organization that partners with communities to raise women's voices and increase women's political participation.
