Alexander De Croo

We need more women as political leaders because leaders should reflect the society they represent – not only
half of it. Women also bring different perspectives to the table. A diverse team is a stronger team. This is why l
formed the first gender balanced federal government in Belgium. Women also have a key role to play in least
developed countries and in conflict-affected countries. Peace and development can only be sustainable if women
are included at the decision table at each level of political leadership.
