relevant course materials, explain to the Assembly which concrete steps that
the government could take to increase both the supply of and demand for
women in politics giving evidence to support your proposals. Ensure that the
initiatives proposed consider intersectionality. Maximum 1000 words.

yourself or a formal essay contrasting and evaluating their views. Maximum
1000 words.

place or should each be understood solely in its specific context? Maximum
1000 words.
