The future of Haiti will depend on more women accessing leadership positions, according to UN Women, the United Nations agency dedicated to gender equality.

Nadège Beauvil, who works as a programme specialist in the Caribbean island, says the current focus of her work is getting more women involved in the upcoming local, legislative, and presidential elections.

As voters, but also as candidates.

Stephanie Coutrix caught up with Ms Beauvil in Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince, and began by asking her what issues women involved in politics are currently pushing forward.
