With support from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), NDI has produced "First Class" — the first documentary video of its kind to profile Jordanian women serving in the lower and upper houses of Parliament.
The 15-minute video is a tribute to these remarkable women parliamentarians, and recognizes their efforts as they work to increase women's political participation in the country. A companion booklet profiles the 14 women and MPs and Senators who served in parliament between 2003 and 2007. Both works are available in English and Arabic.
Pictured above: MP Insaf al Khawaldeh, a member of the Jordanian parliament.
