Seminar Women leaders for women platform

The Macedonian Women’s Lobby implements a project funded by UN Women that strengthens the capacity of women leaders in the Republic of Macedonia. As part of our to advocate for greater women’s participation in political processes, we convened women representatives from the political parties of DOM, DUI, LP, SDSM and VMRO­DPMNE1 this past weekend in Struga.

During the seminar, the party representatives discussed mitigating conflict; advocating for the inclusion of women in party program development; and, strategies to increase women’s participation in internal party decision­making such as candidate selection. Representatives from the European Union, Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, United Nations and OSCE also shared their experiences and expectations for women in Macedonia during the three day event.

At the conclusion of the seminar, the party representatives assembled agreed to five “Principles of Commons Interest”, which include:

● Fostering inter­party dialogue between women’s organizations within the political parties

● Nurturing the existing gender quotas and improving quotas within the parties and institutions

● Advocating for Financial independence of the work of women’s organizations within the parties

● Promoting the relevance of women’s organizations within the political parties to party members and to citizens

● Strengthening solidarity among women’s organizations within the political parties in condemning hate speech directed at women

With these principles, the women organizations of the political parties called for constructive dialogue to ease the current political situation. They believe their commitment to constructive dialogue is a model to overcome the ongoing political impasse.
