Women Mayors' Link (WML) is an initiative of the Stability Pact Gender Task Force (SP GTF), a project developed in the 12 countries and territories of the Stability Pact (SP) Region, with the Equal Opportunities for Women (SEF) Foundation as the lead organization. Begun in 2002, the purpose of the Women Mayors' Link is to foster cooperation between women mayors and local governments and local women's networks in preparing small projects to improve the quality of life of women and children in local communities. It also aims to initiate and facilitate regional and international exchange of best practices in similar projects, lobby for a better representation of women in local government, and support women mayors efforts in increasing people's participation in the problem solving process in their communities.
