Civic duties are far broader than Voting and Obeying the Law. By far the most important duty for all citizens is to actively engage in the work of co-creating community, culture and country--and by this I mean far more than the above. Civic participation requires citizens to always (every day, every age, every place) see ourselves each (and all others) as critical co-creators and stewards of the place we live --- from our neighborhood to our planet. If this sounds overwhelming, it shouldn't. If all (or at least way more) of us were to bring our passion, purpose, predicament and potentials to our 'public' life we'd have more than enough brain, muscle and other power to solve the problems and achieve the aspirations we share.
Violence against women in politics ranges from verbal abuse and threat of reprisal to sexual harassment, rape and even murder in its most brutal and barbaric form. It is crucial to recognize that women are targeted because they are women, thus such violence is gendered in its form and most importantly has the impact to discourage all other women from exercising their voice and agency. Marginalized groups of women face even increased risks. If you are young, poor, and geographically isolated, you are at extreme risk of experiencing VAW because of your political engagement in your group and community.
