The Partnership Center for Development & Democracy meeting in Zahleh on women and public participation

10-09-2013

The Partnership Center for Development & Democracy organized earlier this week a meeting in Zahleh about women and public participation.  This meeting was the third of a series of eight meetings that are being held in different parts of the country and within the framework of the “eye on my municipality” project that the organization is implementing with MEPI funding.
The meeting started with a visual display of several opinions collected from different parts of the country concerning women’s election in municipal councils or in parliament.  Thereafter the discussions among women and men participants centered on those challenges that face women’s participation in political life.  The meeting ended with a presentation of future actions planned by the centre which reiterated its call for a women’s quota to be adopted at various decision making levels, the lifting all reservations on CEDAW and so as to achieve equality and equal opportunities.
