A commitment to increase representation of women in public life has been signed by the assembly, Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) and Welsh ministers.

The WLGA's Ellen ap Gwynn said making councils more representative was "crucial to local democracy".

Only 9% of council leaders and 27% of councillors in Wales are women.

Assembly Presiding Officer Dame Rosemary Butler said women should "should be making the decisions, not just implementing them".
