Women in Trinidad & Tobago are being encouraged to "run, win and lead" in local government politics.

The overall portion of women winning seats as councillors edged up from 29 to 31 per cent after the previous election in 2010.

Since 1996 the women's movement has ensured that no local government corporation is devoid of women in its Council.

An organization in the twin island country is contributing to these developments, by focusing on helping women develop leadership skills to thrive in politics and promote the change within their communities.
