Für Frieden Gemeinsame Deklaration Der Frauen und LGBTI Organisationen Wir Sprechen Alle An!

Wir, die Frauen dieses Landes wollen Frieden. Wie viele Generationen werden noch die Grausamkeiten des Krieges und bewaffneter Auseinandersetzungen erleben? Was werden wir mit so viel Schmerz tun, der nicht wiedergutzumachen ist? Indem das Regime kurz vor der Wahl ankündigte, der Lösungsprozess werde „eingefroren“, wurde dieser zum Verschwinden gebracht. Die Sprache des Krieges kehrte in noch schlimmerer Form als vorher zurück. Diejenigen, von denen ihr sagt, dass ihr Tod gerächt werden muss, sind unsere Kinder. Diejenigen, von denen ihr meint, sie könnten geopfert werden, sind unsere Kinder, unsere Nächsten. Diejenigen, die ihr umbringt, sind unsere Kinder. Was für ein Parlament und was für ein Land wir wollen, haben wir mit unseren Wahlstimmen erzählt. Unser Wille wurde zunichte gemacht. Bombardierungen, Brände und Vergeltungsaktionen kreisen uns ein. Innerhalb eines Monates sind Dutzende unserer Menschen gestorben. Statt um sie zu trauern, brachtet ihr uns dazu, Angst zu haben, dass wir weiterhin Menschen verlieren. Wir haben nicht den Krieg gewählt. Wir haben keine Stimme für ein Notstandsregime gegeben, das nicht einmal mit dem geltenden antidemokratischen Rechtssystem konform ist. Wir haben weder Bomben noch Vergeltung noch Exekutionen noch Sabotagen nötig. Wir Frauen kündigen von hier aus an, dass wir einen Zustand, in dem Krieg und bewaffnete Auseinandersetzungen vorherrschen, nicht akzeptieren werden. Wir sagen zu allen Parteien mit oder ohne Waffen: „Hört endlich auf“. Lasst die Diskussion darüber, wer Recht hat und wer Unrecht, und sagt nicht, „dieser oder jener hat angefangen“, sondern HÖRT AUF! Setzt euch dafür ein, nicht zu töten, sondern leben zu lassen!

Electoral gender quotas – a major electoral reform

Gender quotas are numerical targets that stipulate the number or percentage of women that must be included in a candidate list or the number of seats to be allocated to women in a legislature. They aim to reverse discrimination in law and practice and to level the playing field for women and men in politics. Gender quotas, as they mostly regulate political parties’ actions, underscore the notion of political parties as the ‘gatekeepers’ through which citizens pursue opportunities for political leadership (Dahlerup 2006). Therefore quotas play a critical role in providing meaningful and effective opportunities for female party members to access elected public offices. To date, gender quotas have proved to be the single most effective tool for ‘fast-tracking’ women’s representation in elected bodies of government. It is, however, important to note that as an extensive body of research in this field suggests, quotas may have a differential impact in different contexts and in different electoral systems and may take longer than a single electoral cycle to produce the desired impact. Furthermore, electoral gender quotas do not remove all structural, institutional and societal barriers for women in politics, and need to be complemented by other measures designed to level the playing field for women. There are three key types of gender quotas in politics: Legislated candidate quotas – These quotas regulate the gender composition of the candidate lists and are binding by law for all political parties in the election; they are mandated either through national constitutions or by electoral

Enough to talk, it’s time to act!

Statement issued by the Global Civil Society Advisory Group to UN Women Date: 28th July 2014 International organizations and governments are suffering from a serious misconception: a belief that words suffice. They do not. No one is fulfilling the first six words of the UN Charter “to maintain international peace and security” by simply ‘denouncing’ situations. The Charter makes clear the need “to take effective collective measures”. It is action that is needed, not only more words. We must focus on one of the most urgent examples—the appalling and tragic human rights abuses that are being committed against women across the Arab region and elsewhere in the world. Less than one month ago, a leading female social activist, politician and lawyer Salwa Bugaighis was shot and stabbed in her own home, with no subsequent punitive action taken. International organizations and governments say they will improve peace and security for women but are not actually doing anything about it. It is no surprise that many of Libya’s leading female political and social activists have since fled the country in the face of death threats. This is an immediate and serious loss for the citizens of Libya. The country is about to embark on the critical role of creating a new constitution and government without the women who should be a vital part of that effort. Sadly, Libya is far from the only example. Just a few days ago, a leading Somali female social activist Saado Ali Warsame was assassinated in a

Depo işlemi tamamlandığında Sözleşmeyi onaylayan ülke sayısı beşe yükselecek. Sözleşmenin yürürlüğe girmesi için 10 ülkenin onaylaması yetecek.Sözleşmenin yeterli sayıda ülke tarafından onaylanmasının ardından bir dizi bağımsız uzmanın oluşturduğu izleme komitesi GREVIO devreye girebilecek ve Sözleşmeye taraf olan ülkelerin sözleşme hükümlerini hangi ölçüde hayata geçirdiklerini izleyebilecek.  Bu açıdan Sözleşme’yi imzalayan ancak onaylamamış olan 26 ülkenin onay süreçlerini işletmeleri önem kazanıyor.
