2010 -Peace Building

in 2010, on International Women’s Day, a national campaign was launched in collaboration with partners and other networks on the theme “protect media freedom, enhance democracy and increase women’s participation in politics.”  The main event was held in Colombo at J.R Jayawardena Center. This event was attended by an array of representatives from civil society, trade unions, political parties,  wives of disappeared, women’s organizations, religious leaders and NGO activists. At this event, the women’s manifesto, which highlights pressing the demand for equal rights for women in the social, economic and political spheres, was launched.
This women’s manifesto was specially designed for female candidates contesting the forthcoming local government elections.
This manifesto emphasizes that democracy means full and equal political citizenship for all. The campaign called for commitment from all political leaders at the highest levels to ensure women’s full and equal participation in democratic processes. The manifesto was handed over to representatives of political parties who were present at the event.
