280613WOMEN WANT RECOGNITION
By Aloysius Laukai
Women of Central Bougainville say that they must be allowed to participate at the various negotiations stages of the Panguna Negotiations.
Two women leaders from Central, MRS. BANAS and LYNET ONA told the Arawa forum that women as landowners must be given the chance to participate and give their ideas.
They said that they were not happy in the way the men of Bougainville were leading Bougainville.
AND at the BANA forum another woman leader, AGNES NARA echoed the same sentiments as women were not being recognized to participate at these important forums.
MRS. NARA said that women have the right to participate and give their views as their population is more than the men folk of Bougainville.
New Dawn FM understands that all stakeholders are given the chance to get into groups and present their views to the forum.
And all contributions from these forums will be collated to form the common stand of the people of Bougainville.
