Pedra Badejo, Mar 9 (Inforpress) – The first lady, Lígia Fonseca, defended more equality between men and women and proposed new forms of education and transmission of values so that there is a greater participation of women, mainly from rural areas, in political life and beyond.
Lígia Fonseca, who was speaking to journalists in Tarrafal de Santiago, on the sidelines of the celebration of International Women’s Day, said that women in Cabo Verde have already overcome several challenges, but “there are still many”.
“The meeting in the community of Trás os Montes served precisely to share experiences and to leave here my call for them to be present at this moment in which our country is going to start the electoral cycle”, she said.
As she explained, the country is unable to take the steps it wants to take if women are not present. In this regard, she highlighted the importance of the process of registration and participation in the elections. For the first lady, it is also important that women make themselves available to give their contribution, assuming the direction of the country’s destinations.
