Angela Merkel, canciller alemana
Es la primera vez que Merkel figura en la lista.
La jefa de gobierno de Alemania, Angela Merkel, superó a la secretaria de Estado de Estados Unidos, Condoleezza Rice, como la mujer más poderosa del mundo, afirmó la revista Forbes.

El poder cambió de manos después de dos años en los que se impuso Rice, quien en esta ocasión quedó en segundo puesto en la lista que ordena a las cien mujeres con más influencia en el mundo.

La ministra de Relaciones Exteriores del Reino Unido, Margaret Beckett ocupa el puesto 29, mientras que Cherie Blair, esposa del primer ministro británico Tony Blair, desapareció de la lista después de haber estado en el puesto 62.

Para elaborar esta lista, Forbes toma en cuenta la visibilidad en los medios así como su impacto económico.

Las más nuevas

Cabe señalar que Merkel no calificó en el listado de 2005, al igual que la presidenta de Chile, Michelle Bachelet y sus homólogas surcoreana y liberiana. Todas ellas aparecen este año por primera vez.

LAS 10 MÁS PODEROSAS
Angela Merkel, canciller alemana
Condoleezza Rice, Secretaria de Estado de EE.UU.
Wu Yi, vice premier china
Indra Nooyi, directora ejecutiva designada de PepsiCo
Anne Mulcahy, presidenta y directora ejecutiva de Xerox
Sallie Krawcheck, directora financiera de Citigroup
Patricia Woertz, directora ejecutiva de Archer Daniels Midland
Anne Lauvergeon, directora de Areva
Brenda Barnes, presidenta y directora ejecutiva de Sara Lee
Zoe Cruz, co presidenta de Morgan Stanley

Michelle Bachelet se encuentra en el puesto 17, mientras que la presidenta de Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, está en posición 51, y la primera ministra de Corea del Sur, Han Myung-sook, está en el puesto 68.

La lista incluye a la vice premier china Wu Yi, conocida también como la "mujer de hierro", en el tercer lugar.

El resto de las diez mujeres más poderosas pertenecen al mundo de los negocios. La número cuatro es la directora ejecutiva designada de PespiCo, Indra Nooyi.

FORO DE MUJERES DEL MERCOSUR

FORO DE MUJERES
 
La ciudad bonaerense de La Plata será el escenario de un foro regional de mujeres donde se analizarán distintas cuestiones políticas y sociales, abordadas desde una perspectiva de género.
 
Buenos Aires, agosto de 2006 (RIS- Argentina) Para debatir sobre el diseño de estrategias que impulsen la integración de la mujer en la región se realizará el 7 y 8 de septiembre el XII Encuentro Regional del Foro de Mujeres del MERCOSUR, en la ciudad bonaerense de La Plata.
 

La integración con responsabilidad social es el lema del encuentro en el que se debatirán temas como alianzas estratégicas para la integración, medioambiente, Responsabilidad Social Empresaria (RSE) y recuperación de la relación entre la ética y la economía, entre otros. También se disertará sobre equidad de género en la región, impacto de los procesos de integración económica, generación de acciones en pos de un verdadero proceso de integración y relaciones culturales en el Mercosur.

La iniciativa es organizada por el Foro de Mujeres del MERCOSUR, una organización social creada en 1995, e integrada por mujeres que se desempeñan en sectores políticos, empresariales, sindicales y del campo de la educación y la cultura, y que a su vez forman parte de instituciones sociales de Paraguay, Argentina, Uruguay y Brasil.

Elisa Schuster, miembro de la comisión organizadora, señaló que a través del encuentro “buscamos la integración de la mujer. Avanzamos mucho en ese sentido, pero no es suficiente. Queremos formar parte de las decisiones, que se tome en cuenta y se instale la mirada de la mujer, la discusión, la participación y el aporte de todos los sectores sobre la base de nuestra necesaria presencia en el Mercosur”, remarcó.

La actividad tendrá lugar en el Hotel Howard Johnson Inn Corregidor, ubicado en la calle 6 número 1026, en La Plata. Una de las misiones principales del foro será fortalecer la capacidad y las oportunidades del liderazgo femenino en la región. En ese sentido, en forma periódica la organización elabora proyectos y desarrolla actividades de capacitación. Uno de los logros que obtuvo la entidad fue que el órgano ejecutivo del Mercosur creó, en 1998, la Reunión Especializada de la Mujer y nombró al Foro de Mujeres del Mercosur como su organismo asesor.

Concurso Fotográfico: Mujeres que inspiran.

Concurso fotográfico: mujeres que inspiran

Tu fotografía puede aparecer publicada en el Estado Mundial de la Infancia de este año

© UNICEF Bangladesh/Seidel/2003
Con el dinero que Hasmuna gana tomando fotos espera continuar su educación.
Prensa UNICEF/Patagonia Ciber Fem

El Estad Mundial de la Infancia de este año defenderá que uno de los principales obstáculos para el cumplimiento de los derechos de la infancia y el logro de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio es la discriminación que sufre la mujer.

El informe señalará dos cuestiones:

1. Que hay una doble discriminación: las sociedades que discriminan contra la mujer discriminan también contra los niños.
2. Que cuando se habilita a la mujer para que tome decisiones, ésta tiene una mayor capacidad para lograr que se hagan realidad sus propios derechos y para apoyar los derechos de la infancia.

Con el objetivo de que nos ayuden a expresar el papel importante que desempeña la mujer en el bienestar de la infancia nos gustaría que nos envíen la fotografía de una mujer clave en tu vida - tu madre, tu hermana, tu maestra, una amiga - que haya sido una fuente de inspiración y apoyo especialmente importante.

Las fotos deben incluir una explicación de 250 palabras donde se indique quién es la mujer y cómo te ha inspirado. Incluye también tu nombre, edad, dirección postal y dirección de email si es posible.

Aceptaremos las presentaciones en voy@unicef.org o en La Juventud Opina, Room 1004, 3 UN Plaza, New York City, NY 10017 hasta el viernes 8 de septiembre 2006.

Rep. Democrática del Congo: Violencia Sexual

Aun en los lugares de la República Democrática del Congo donde ha cesado la lucha, la violencia sexual sigue lastimando a los niños, las niñas y las mujeres

Prensa UNICEF/Patagonia Ciber Fem

Selina, de 12 años de edad, es una de las víctimas de la violencia sexual. A pesar de que su historia es estremecedora, no se trata de un caso excepcional. Se calcula que en la República Democrática del Congo cientos de miles de mujeres, niñas y niños han sido víctimas de violaciones sexuales.

Por David McKenzie

En el informe La infancia en peligro: La República Democrática del Congo, UNICEF pone de relieve las consecuencias que han tenido para los niños y niñas de ese país los largos años de conflicto y desorden. Se trata del último de tres informes especiales de la serie La infancia en peligro elaborados por  David McKenzie, corresponsal de UNICEF.

KISANGANI, República Democrática del Congo, 4 de agosto de 2006 - Más allá de la bruma y los densos bosques que cubren las orillas del Río Congo, en la localidad de Kisangani acampan miles de milicianos y efectivos del ejército gubernamental. Se trata de un osado experimento, cuyo objetivo consiste en integrar pacíficamente a esos antiguos enemigos, lo que constituye un paso fundamental para garantizar la paz futura.

Sin embargo, la presencia de esos ex combatientes es motivo de dolor para las mujeres y los niños y niñas de la región.

"La violencia sexual es aquí cosa de todos los días", afirma Michel Magayane, un trabajador social. "Todos los días ocurren nuevos casos". El Sr. Magayane dice que los culpables pertenecen, en su mayoría, a las fuerzas militares, y cree que en más de un 70% de los casos se trata de violaciones de niños y niñas. La víctima más joven tenía cuatro años de edad.

A pesar de que en Kisangani ya no se combate con las armas, la violencia sexual sigue siendo un terrible legado de la guerra en la República Democrática del Congo.

La violación como arma de guerra

Selina, una niña de 12 años de edad que hoy luce un vestido color rosa con vivos blancos, está sentada en un cuarto en penumbras. Las heridas que sufrió a manos de su agresor todavía son evidentes, así como el dolor que siente la niña al contar lo que le sucedió.

"Estaba recogiendo agua cuando sentí que alguien se acercaba por detrás", recuerda. "Noté que se trataba de alguien de uniforme. El hombre cogió una piedra, me la metió en la boca y me arrastró hasta que quedamos ocultos por la maleza". Ninguna de las personas que pasaba por un camino cercano escuchó los gritos de Selina mientras el soldado la violaba. Cuando alguien finalmente acudió en su ayuda, el violador ya había huido.

Aunque la historia de Selina resulte estremecedora, no se trata de un caso excepcional. Se calcula que cientos de miles de mujeres, niños y niñas han sido violados en la República Democrática del Congo, una nación lacerada por la violencia sexual.

"Durante la guerra, las violaciones se usaban como arma para humillar a las mujeres y fracturar a las familias", afirma la profesora Pierra Kalala, una psicóloga que ha trabajado en las regiones del país más afectadas por ese flagelo. "La mayoría de las mujeres viven hoy en un estado de temor".

Michel Magayane, trabajador social, juega con una niña de nueve años de edad que fue víctima de una violación. Tras dos meses de convalecencia en un hospital, la niña se ha recuperado físicamente, pero aún teme a casi todos los adultos.

Los peligros de las enfermedades de transmisión sexual

Las violaciones tienen consecuencias muy graves, especialmente en un país donde la población no cuenta con atención médica adecuada. En esas circunstancias, las violaciones sexuales pueden provocar lesiones físicas permanentes. Con frecuencia, las fístulas no reciben tratamiento y no se detectan los casos de contagio de enfermedades. Las mujeres violadas huyen de los lugares donde vivían debido al peligro de difamación. En Kisangani, los agresores suelen  jactarse de sus "conquistas", y los casos de violencia sexual rara vez son denunciados o procesados.

Los violadores se amparan en supersticiones locales para llevar a cabo sus terribles acciones. Afirman, por ejemplo, que al violar a una niña de corta edad tendrán más suerte en los negocios o ganarán más dinero. Una niña de nueve años de edad de Kisangani estuvo dos meses internada en un hospital debido a que había sido violada por un adolescente. Hasta la fecha, el agresor continúa burlándose de ella cada vez que la ve. Aquí, los vulnerables viven en la injusticia.

De no modificarse la situación, la República Democrática del Congo tiene entre sus manos una bomba de tiempo. Se calcula que 1,1 millón de habitantes del país viven con el VIH. Las mujeres y los niños y niñas que son violados por los militares corren alto riesgo de contagio esa enfermedad. Y debido a que el país carece prácticamente de un sistema de atención de la salud, el VIH y el SIDA se propagan muy velozmente.

Para poner fin al azote de la violencia

A pesar de que la situación parece descorazonadora, existen esperanzas. Los niños y niñas están organizando agrupaciones juveniles en las que hablan de diversos temas de importancia, como la violencia sexual. Al referirse de manera franca a esos temas delicados, los niños y niñas confrontan al mundo adulto por los sufrimientos que reciben y también se protegen de los peligros que les acechan.

Los niños y niñas debaten abiertamente temas como el VIH/SIDA y distribuyen panfletos sobre las maneras en que pueden protegerse de las agresiones sexuales. También tratan de conversar sobre esos temas en sus casas, con sus padres y otros adultos.
Sin embargo, algunos creen que los adultos aún no escuchan a los más jóvenes.

El Sr. Magayane opina que la responsabilidad de poner fin al azote de la violencia le corresponde a quienes vivieron los años de guerra. "Lo que nos preocupa es que los adultos deberíamos estar protegiendo a la niñez. Y lo que estamos haciendo es matar a nuestro propio futuro".

Transversalidad del Género en el Emprendimiento Regional

Transversalidad del Género en el Emprendimiento Regional

categorias: Sociedad - Local

Hoy se calcula que hay 513.000 mujeres emprendedoras en Chile, que equivalen al 33% del total de emprendedores del país. Hace tres años sólo había un 20% de mujeres que se atrevían o incursionaban en iniciativas e ideas.

El Rancahuaso/Chile/Patagonia Ciber Fem


Por tal motivo, la firma de convenio entre Sercotec y Sernam que fue firmado este martes, es un instrumento válido para el fomento productivo; el que servirá para actuar coordinada y complementariamente con el objeto de contribuir con el fortalecimiento de las iniciativas productivas emprendedoras y formales, a través de acciones que permitan sensibilizar y entregar espacios de igualdad de oportunidades para hombres y mujeres.

La Directora Regional del Sernam, Aixa Cataldo Alcaíno, refiriéndose al paso que ambas instituciones dieron con la firma de este compromiso mutuo, dijo que “estamos seguros que este esfuerzo de trabajar intersectorialmente, obedece a una realidad y estrategia que el Sernam viene trabajando hace años. Hoy sabemos que un gran porcentaje de iniciativas de micremprendimiento presentes en la región están en manos de mujeres. Y cuando hablamos de enfoque de género, también nos referimos a cómo y en qué condiciones esas mujeres sacan adelante sus ideas. En esto creo que es necesario profundizar algunos aspectos y tener en cuenta, por ejemplo, cómo conciliamos la vida familiar y laboral, cuáles son las trabas que existen para acceder a créditos y cómo también creamos programas diferenciados para un mejor desarrollo de sus ideas o negocios. Esfuerzo, dijo, está en la línea y preocupación de la Agenda de Género que impulsa la Presidenta Michelle Bachelet y que ayer corroboró en las medidas y propuestas anunciadas para ese sector”, refiriéndose a los anuncios hechos en el 7º Encuentro Nacional de la Pequeña Empresa (Enape), realizado el lunes recién pasado.

En tanto, Gabriel Alvarez Villa, Director Regional de Sercotec, manifestó su compromiso de seguir apoyando el esfuerzo que hace el Estado en tener una nueva mirada “con enfoque de género”, una perspectiva que no siempre es bien entendida y que la entidad está desarrollando cada vez con más fuerza, señalando que “esperamos con este convenio consolidar todo un trabajo que ya veníamos realizando y darle una formalidad a fin de que el avance en el tema de género sea efectivo y no sea tan sólo palabras o buenas intenciones”, agregando además que con esta firma de colaboración el Sernam participará en todas las instancias y mesas técnicas que tiene ese servicio.
