US Envoy Wants Liberian Women to Contest in 2017

first_imgThe Charge d’Affairs at United States Embassy, Sheila Paskman, has urged Liberian women to rise to the occasion and challenge their male counterparts by winning more top positions, especially elective positions, in 2017 general and presidential elections.“I want to urge Liberian women to take bold steps and participate in the upcoming 2017 elections to secure seats in the legislature,” she said. Madam Paskman also mentioned that with Liberia having Africa’s first female President, there are fewer women in top positions in government, especially appointed positions, and encouraged women to fight for more seats in government.She made the statement recently at a program marking Mercy Corps’ Ebola Community Action Platform (ECAP2) 3rd Lessons Learned Conference, held at a resort in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.The participation of women in government remains key because women are peacemakers and can contribute immensely to Liberia’s economy, said Paskman.“You need to also participate in the registration process and ensure that you are not only contesting but also involved into all related processes. You need to encourage other women in your community. Liberian women’s participation in these elections remains cardinal to their empowerment and development,” she said.Women should make politicians listen to them because that’s the only way their potentials can be realized Paskman advised.“It’s very serious because women must participate in the election process by encouraging women in villages, towns, communities and every part of the country to register in order to have more women heading major seats in the government,” she said.She pointed out that women play a major role in every society, especially when it comes to making decisions and also help other women to achieve their goals.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
