Ilham Aliyev

We need more women in our parliaments and as political leaders because the role of women in the development of every society cannot be underestimated. It would be impossible to build up a democratic society based on pluralism and tolerance without women’s participation. Women and men are capable of overcoming complex challenges of the contemporary world only through joint efforts. Azerbaijan, as the first Muslim country in the Orient that granted women the right to vote in 1918, will always be committed to these principles.
