Maldivian Women in Public Life



Wife. Mother. Atoll Councilor. Meet Nazla who’s shaping the future of Shaviyani Atoll as the only female member in the Council.

Currently women constitute only 5% of councilors in Maldives. At UNDP, we’d love to see more women like Nazla leading the way in Atoll and Island Councils.
