Mujeres afganas

04 de diciembre, 2007  La Misión de Asistencia de las Naciones Unidas en Afganistán (UNAMA) pidió hoy a todos los afganos que defiendan el derecho de las mujeres de vivir sin miedo a la violencia.
El llamado –lanzado con motivo del Día de los Derechos Humanos, que se conmemora el 10 de diciembre – fue apoyado por las autoridades locales y la Comisión Nacional de Derechos Humanos.

La Misión señaló que en los últimos seis años se han registrado en Afganistán avances reales, como la inclusión de las mujeres en la vida pública o su regreso a las escuelas y universidades.

Asimismo, destacó que las mujeres están desempeñando un papel vital en la reconstrucción del país.

Sin embargo, apuntó Margarite Roy, jefa de la oficina regional de UNAMA en Mazar-e-Sharif, la violencia contra las mujeres sigue siendo endémica.

“Veintenas de mujeres y niñas fueron asesinadas este año a manos de sus propias familias y muchas otras fueron golpeadas o abusadas”, recalcó.

Agregó que son muchas las víctimas que continúan sufriendo en silencio. “Esta violencia es inaceptable, sea perpetrada por familiares o extraños, en público o a puertas cerradas, en tiempos de paz o de conflicto”, dijo Roy.

Subrayó que Naciones Unidas desempeña un papel importante para que las mujeres afganas tengan poder, así como para incrementar la capacidad de las instituciones con el objetivo de que apoyen a las víctimas.

Pero le corresponde a toda la sociedad afgana luchar para poner fin a la violencia de género, afirmó la UNAMA.

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon issued a statement for 25
November 2007, International Day for the Elimination of Violence
against
Women, condemning violence against women and announcing a system-wide
multi-year campaign through 2015. The campaign will focus on three key
areas: global advocacy; United Nations leadership by example; and
strengthened partnerships at the national and regional levels to
support
the work of Governments, civil society, the private sector and others.

Within this framework, UN-INSTRAW’s Director, Carmen Moreno, emphasized

the need for joint efforts to eliminate gender-based violence and
called
for increased collaboration among UN entities. UN-INSTRAW’s research
programme on Gender, Peace and Security aims to promote gender equality

and women’s full and equal participation in peacekeeping, peace
processes, post-conflict situations and in security sector reform.

On the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence,
the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) and UNIFEM
Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman launched an Internet campaign
entitled
“NO to Violence against Women”, which aims to raise awareness on the
consequences of violence against women. Moreover, UNIFEM published a
report on violence against women entitled “NO MORE!!!! The right of
Women to live a Life Free from Violence in Latin America and the
Caribbean,” calling “…on governments, international organizations,
civil
society and the media to promote the eradication of violence against
women and an end to impunity for those who commit such crimes”.

High Level Dialogue about the National Implementation of Resolution
1325
in Latin America and the Caribbean

From November 19th to 21st 2007, UN-INSTRAW participated in the
High-Level Dialogue on the National-Level Implementation of Resolution
1325 (2000) in Latin America and the Caribbean. This event was
organized
by the Office of the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Gender

Issues and the Advancement of Women (OSAGI) and the Women and
Development Unit of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the
Caribbean (ECLAC) at the UN regional commission headquarters in
Santiago
de Chile. Rachel Mayanja, the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General
on Gender Issues and the Advancement of Women moderated the dialogue
between representatives from Ministries of Women and Defense from 10
countries in the region. A risk-assessment of the region was presented
by Professor Ilja Luciak. In addition the United Nations Institute For
Training and Research Programme of Correspondence Instruction
(UNITAR-POCI) and Professor Ximena Jimenez presented a
recently-developed Spanish-language online training course on UNSCR
1325. UN-INSTRAW presented its Guide to the formulation of National
Action plans on UNSCR 1325
(http://www.un-instraw.org/en/gps/general/implementation-of-un-scr-1325-5.html).

Representatives from Member States in the region debated future
activities, challenges and opportunities for the development of
national
action plans to put UNCR 1325 into practice in their respective
countries. UN-INSTRAW welcomes the enthusiasm and commitment of
national
representatives of the region to making this ground-breaking resolution

on women, peace and security a reality.

Second International Money Transmitters Convention

UN-INSTRAW participated in the Second International Money Transmitters
Convention (IMTC) from November 15th to 16th 2007 in Fort Lauderdale,
Florida. The Convention was organized by the National Money
Transmitters
Association (NMTA) in cooperation with the Florida International
Bankers
Association (FIBA). Transmitters and employees, agents, bankers, credit

unions, micro-finance institutions, professional service providers,
government officials and UN Institutions attended this event. The main
object of the IMTC was to establish a dialogue among these different
actors involved in international money transmissions. Ms Carmen Moreno,

Director of UN-INSTRAW, stressed the importance of developing
appropriate and accessible financial services for women in order to
maximize the development impact of remittances and help women
recipients
strengthen their savings and investment capacities. With 21 case
studies
in the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, South-East Asia and Africa,
UN-INSTRAW`s pioneering research on the gender dimensions of
remittances
for development has highlighted the fact that many women face
additional
barriers to accessing financial products and services, which limits
their ability to invest remittances in income-generating activities.

Local governments need to work harder for women

UN-INSTRAW, Progressio, Volens, the Dominican National Council for
State
Reform (CONARE), the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation
(AECI)
and the Friederich Ebert Stiftung (FES), organized a two-day Seminar on

Gender Equality and Local Development, on 21-22 November 2007 in Santo
Domingo, D.R. The conference brought together women municipal leaders
from Central America and the Dominican Republic with the aim of sharing

their experiences on municipal management from a gender perspective and

highlighting the importance of gender equality and the empowerment of
women in local government. As a result of this meeting, a regional
agreement was reached to strengthen the dialogue among key women
stakeholders, and a Declaration was issued that calls on municipal
leaders to address women’s needs, views and priorities at the local
level and to involve more women in local decision-making and planning
processes.

UN-INSTRAW takes action to help women in post-disaster situations

UN-INSTRAW provided an emergency response to the Dominican Republic in
the wake of Tropical Storm Noel. The Institute participated in the
assessment of damages and a Flash Appeal, which included a detailed
situation analysis to guide humanitarian efforts, a stakeholder
analysis
and a clear statement of longer-term objectives. The Flash Appeal was
issued by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Country Team in
the
Dominican Republic, which includes UN agencies, other international
organizations and NGOs. On the basis of assessments conducted by the UN

System in the Dominican Republic, in collaboration with local
governmental organizations, it is evident that women and children are
among the most vulnerable groups in situations of disaster due to their

unequal access to resources and exposure to violence in isolated,
unsafe
environments. In particular low-income women, single mothers, pregnant
women, nursing mothers, widows and those belonging to marginalized
racial or cultural groups are particularly vulnerable to emergency
situations. In collaboration with UNFPA the Institute will carry out a
rapid assessment to identify the most affected groups and areas, and in

collaboration with UNICEF, it will conduct an analysis of post-disaster

gender-based violence, will collect data on gender-based violence with
the objective of assisting 65,000 women and children seriously affected

by the storm, and will conduct gender training for personnel working in

emergency response activities.

Global Gender News

United Nations Independent Experts Call on States to Strengthen the
Protection of Women from Violence

On the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence
against Women (25 November), the United Nations published a press
release stating that although in recent years several legal and
practical instruments have been formulated to make known the scale of
violence against women, significant gaps in protection remain a cause
for grave concern. Frequently, cultural and religious beliefs impede
the
application of measures aimed at protecting women from violence.
Moreover, international instruments and strategies developed to address

violence against women, which should be used more systematically, have
been slow in confronting other aspects of gender-based violence. The UN

appealed to the international community, to States, and civil society
“to make full use of all existing instruments and mechanisms in a
comprehensive fashion” in order to provide protection to women from all

form of violence.

Global Campaign to Stop Stoning and Killing Women

Women Living Under Muslim Laws (WLUML) launched the Global Campaign to
‘Stop Stoning and Killing Women!’ on 26 November 2007 at Bilgi
University, Istanbul, Turkey. The Campaign objective is to end the
“misuse of religion and culture as justification to kill women as
punishment for violating the ‘norms’ of sexual behaviour as defined and

imposed by vested interests”. The Campaign, initiated by a group of
activists, lawyers, journalists and academics, aims at providing
support
to women’s rights advocates and women’s movements to resist those
forces
which politicize and misuse culture and religion for subjugating women
and to abuse of their human rights. As a result of discriminatory laws
and customs, increasing numbers of women are being punished by stoning
or killed.
