The Women Political Rights Advocacy Group (WPRAG) held a meeting with the advisor of Chief executive on Women & Youth Affairs. The participants of this meeting were MPs, representative of Ministry of Women Affairs, representatives of political parties and civil society. At the beginning of the meeting, Mrs. Surabi advisor of chief executive office on Women & Youth Affairs welcomed the participants of meeting and urged Mrs. Sima Ghani and Mariam Arween to begin the meeting.
Then, Mrs. Ghani said, “Some time ago FEFA held a survey to identify women challenges and evaluate women presence in political leadership level. The findings of this survey was shared with Mrs. Surabi and then Mrs. Surabi urged for sharing it with all WPRAG members to lobby for increasing women presence in political positions.” Mrs. Ghani added that two advocacy groups had prepared a list of elite women who are qualified for working in high political positions and shared with ministries but their work was not fruitful. “The members of WPRAG wanted to know what are women’s weakness to work change them to strengths so the WPRAG established a working committee to evaluate women weakness and prepare a list of elite women who are qualified for working in high political positions. The working committee succeeded to prepare the list within 4 month and now the list is presented to participants.” She said.
