The women section of the Future Movement organizes a seminar in women’s quota

22-06-2013

The women section of the Future Movement organizes last week a seminar in women’s quota as a tool to strengthen women’s participation in political life.  The seminar included a lecture by Fahmiah Charafeddine the President of The National Committee for the Follow up of Women's Issues CFUWI, who indicated that in principle, women’s political participation does not raise any objections but is difficult to implement.  This is illustrated in women’s participation in parliament which does not much exceed 3% and is one of the lowest worldwide.  She added that the best solution is the adoption of a women’s quota of 33.33% which is a temporary and technical measure aiming at bridging the gender gap in public and political life.
