Strengthening the role of women in municipalities in the Bekaa


Pioneer Women association worked with 70 women in all Lebanese governorates, building their capacities in preparation for the next municipal elections in 2016.  This work was carried out within the framework of the project entitled “women in municipalities”.  After this first phase, women who participated in the various training events were required to assess the needs of their localities and to organize a number of activities aimed at improving the situation in their locations as well as to bring in awareness, positive change and strengthen and visibilise the professional work that women can do in municipalities.  Within that framework, the Beqaa women group organized last Friday a seminar entitled “strengthening the role of women in municipalities”.  The event aimed at encouraging women to engage in municipal work and to seek decision making positions.  The seminar started with a presentation of the objectives and activities of the “Women in Municipalities” project. This was followed by several interventions of women from the audience and was concluded with recommendations on ways which would empower women to engage further in civil society and in public life.
