Georgia's October 2013 presidential election resulted in the nation's second consecutive peaceful transfer of power through the ballot box.

What prospects do women – particularly those who have reached the legal voting age during the last decade – have in today's Georgia? What does the next generation believe are the key gender-related issues facing the nation?
