In collaboration with the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC) and the United Nations Peace Building Office in Sierra Leone (UNIPSIL), the Womenís Wing of main opposition Sierra Leone Peopleís Party (SLPP) on Friday 9th¬†July 2010 started a two-day Action Plan workshop on Gender Policy.


In her opening statement, the National Womenís leader, Mrs. Isata Kabba pointed that the primary aim of the workshop was to sensitize women on the contents of the new Sierra Leone Peopleís Party (SLPP) Gender policy for proper dissemination, and also to develop gender action plan in the country in order to stop impunity and to increase womenís participations in national politics.


She said it has been observed that women are not fully represented in governance and for such, the womenís wing of the party were determined to change that.¬† ďSLPP is a party of integrity and to show that we lead and others follow that is why we created a policy to be included in partyís constitutions,Ē she disclosed.


She ended by thanking the PPRC and UNIPSIL for the supporting the party and women of this country to discourage impunity by perpetrators of intimidation and violence against women.  

 

In his presentation, PPRC Eastern Region Mediation Officer, Mr. Victor H. Kamara said the representation of women in the internal politics of Sierra Leone is one of their objectives, adding that this is the best time for the SLPP to rethink as 2012 is behind the corner where they are longing to see the full participation of women to ensure that internal democracy is seen in all political parties. He assured the SLPP womenís wing of the commissionís support with the promise that PPRC will put strict laws in place to protect womenís participation come 2012.


The workshops on the Gender Policy will be replicated in all the twelve districts in the country aimed at sensitizing SLPP women on the provisions of the policy as included in the partyís constitution.
