Zalal also pointed out to the role communes’ members are playing to raise awareness among women in the canton and said” we should be wondering at the point we have reached at? How well women have organized themselves? As the annual report of Star Conference indicates that 10 communes are not active out of 52 women communes.
Zalal appealed of the Training, Economics, Youthful Women, Protection, Heath, Reconciliation, and Services communes in organizing society on all levels.
Jiger also criticized the institutions concerned with women in the canton and said” in spite of the fact some women institutions exist, women in the canton are exposed to violence, rape, and a victim of the masculine mentality, so these institutions should be playing their role in raising awareness among women and educating her about her rights.
