Abstract:
The study of relationship between civil society and political participation as a way of democratic quality for women is a living subject by gaining depth and strength through regular applications. An understanding of what political participation with civil society support means is advanced, optimistically, regularity in all settlements of the world. This research highlights the complex and fractured nature of political participation, particularly for women, and depicts how the 'counterpartizm' between civil society and political participation is essential and pre-requisite as a commodity of democratic quality and consolidation. In this context, it should be emphasized that 'counterpartizm' is a brand-new term which was discovered and labeled by ourselves as a representative of political participation in the heart of civil society to ensure democracy. Thus shaping the web of civic participation emphasizes the new means of democratic accretion through civil society. Civil society is accepted by most scholars of democratization as an essential component of democratic consolidation. Such judgments are seldom based upon empirical evidence from developing democracies. Although civil society cannot be defined as a cause of democracy by some scholars, we will try to explore through this research that it at least serves as a breeding ground and as a way of democratic quality for participation in the activities of political society, such as voting, participation in political organizations, and other activities that contribute to the health of democratic governance.
