A delegation comprising 8 Jordanians and 17 Moroccans visited Denmark between 10 and 14 November. Firstly, they visited Denmark’s second largest city. Following this, they went to the Danish capital Copenhagen to participate in the international conference “Women, local politics and equality in Denmark, Jordan and Morocco” hosted by the Women’s Council in Denmark.
When Jordanians went to the polls in 2007’s local elections, one candidate in particular stood out. Kawtar Abd-Allah Bakheet Al-Egweiri was a clear vote-winner (being the woman candidate who received most votes in the entire country) and was overwhelmingly elected onto the municipal council of Jordan’s third-largest city, Zarga.
