In order to fight everyday corruption, transparency and accountability within the government are key. However, sometimes this is easier said than done. Even if funding may be in place, corrupt politicians may divert resources elsewhere.
In the final portion of this series, examples are given on how women and public service groups have fought corruption on the grassroots level. Many of these organizations or groups of women exposed the violations taking place through the media – the public then took notice at a national, and sometimes worldwide, level.
It is no doubt a dangerous feat to expose the government’s wrongdoings, but these women have shown fearlessness in the face of corruption. We encourage you to read more about these issues on the FCPA blog and to learn more about what you can do to help.
