Forum On Women Access To Information

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, March  15 (LINA) - Participants  at a one-day forum to validate a research on women’s access to information (ATI) say the slow pace at which women obtain information for growth and development  is mainly due to traditional and cultural practices,  as well as domestic workload.

In  January  and  February  2014, the Women NGOS Secretariat  in  collaboration  with Carter  Center  conducted  a research  into  access  to  information  in Bomi , Grand Gedeh, Lofa, Nimba and Montserrado counties, to determine  whether women in Liberia are accessing  information  in every sector.

The  Zwedru  validation  session  was  facilitated  by  Mrs. Christina McGill Doe of the Carter Center, and was attended  by  representatives  of  women  organizations, agencies of government and  community-based  organizations.

According to Mrs. Doe, the validation exercise will continue in the other four counties, to get feedback and make adjustments where necessary, before the final document which will contain recommendations is published, to address the situation and bring women on par with their male counterparts.

The forum was formally opened by Mr. Olaska W. Bah, Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent of  Grand Gedeh County, who encouraged the participants to make maximum use of the forum.
