Seminar in Denniyyeh on women and peace building


In cooperation with the Federation of Municipalities of Denniyyeh, the National Commission for Lebanese Women (NCLW) organized yesterday a seminar entitled, ‘women participation and peace building in Lebanon’ at the Denniyyeh Complex for Care and Development. The activity comes as part of ‘promoting women’s participation in local development’ project funded by the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ). The headmistress of the co-ed Seer Denniyyeh Public High school, Raw’aa Fatfat, underlined the important role of women in the advancement of society and the need to activate and promote their participation in municipal work and in political life based on their competence rather than on their political legacy. Likewise, the chief of the Federation of Denniyyeh Municipalities, Mohamad Saadiyeh, cited studies that determined the rate of corruption in the world, maintaining that nearly 87% of corruption is an act by men. “It is not about inadequate rights, but it is more about an ignorant and hypocrite male chauvinist sexist society which lacks the boldness to speak the truth. We have to be supportive of women,” Saadiyeh stated. For her part, the project director, Bernadette Daou, praised Saadiyeh’s backing for women, particularly that he facilitated this activity which is one in a series of seminars to be held in the various Lebanese regions.
