On April 4-5, the IFES-supported Journalists Network for Gender Equality (JNGE) conducted a public outreach campaign titled, “We Need Women in Politics! Vote for Women!” A gender-themed arts and crafts exhibition was held in Telavi, followed by a gender-themed auto rally that gathered over 3,000 attendees, including the Governor of Kakheti and the head of Telavi’s municipality. Six women and 16 men racers participated in the event, which highlighted the importance of gender equality with an innovative twist.
