DEBATE ON "PARTICIPATION OF ROMA WOMEN IN THE POLITICS"
Датум: 6/23/2012
 
Debate on "Participation of Roma women in the politics" was held on 23rd of June 2012 in the premises of the Roma Resource Center - RRC in Shuto Orizari. The debate was organized by the informal group of Roma women in the municipality of Shuto Orizari that participated at the training "Roma Women Can Do It" in cooperation with WCI Antico. The aim of this debate was to consider what is the status of Roma women in the politics, how to improve their position and how to strengthen the activism of Roma women. The participants at the debate were representatives from NGOs, students and representatives from Roma political parties UPE, DRF and RAM. During the debate was developed a discussion about the motivation of women for being members in political parties and the benefits of membership in a political party. The participants emphasized that the only motivation for membership in a political party is the employment although it should not be so, i.e. except the individual interest with individual work and contribution to the party actually it contributes to the Roma community. Regarding the increasing of motivation of women for their membership in a political party it was came to the conclusion that they should understand the benefits of membership in a political party and believe that their own work and their creativity, can secure their place where decisions are made. The participants emphasized the need to work on the field and to strengthened the awareness of Roma women and to indicate to them the benefits of membership in a political party. Also was raised the issue of the impact of Roma women in the community and it was came to the conclusion that Roma woman has very little impact even though they have academic education. The patriarchal environment in the community does not allow women to distinguish themselves as leaders. There is a need to work on the strengthening of networking among women's groups in the communities and mobilization of potential resources to undertake specific actions. As one of the specific actions that participants themselves suggested is that as an informal group they will schedule a meeting with women in the council of the municipality of Shuto Orizari for common interests of Roma women in the community.
