Seventh National Conference of the Women’s Parliamentary Network

The Seventh National Conference of the Women’s Parliamentary Network entitled “Not In My Parliament” began with a minute of silence for the victims of domestic violence. WPN Coordinator Olena Papuga greeted the over 300 participants from local self-governments, NGOs and national minority councils. She stressed that domestic violence affects all structures, regardless of age, place or education which is why it is the conference’s goal to come to conclusions that women MPs can champion to be included into future laws concerning the prevention of violence and the gender equality struggle.

In the panel on the CEDAW recommendations for Serbia the participants discussed the activism in local self-governments concerning the application of the CEDAW recommendations in cooperation with the existing bodies and mechanisms for their implementation. WPN member Gordana Comic, Director of the Government’s Office for Human and Minority Rights Suzana Paunovic, Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities Gender Equality And Human Rights Advisor Natasa Okilj and the Chairperson of the Committee on Human and Minority Rights and Gender Equality Jasmina Karanac took part in the debate.
