Right to Political Participation and Empowerment of Indigenous Women
Political participation of women is a fundamental right, and ensuring its exercise is an obligation of the State. Indigenous women have been immersed in a private world and their contribution to the development of society has not been visible, as they have been reduced to their reproductive capacities. Devaluated and subordinated to male power, women have experienced discrimination and violation of their individual and social rights.
The UNPFII is working on the recognition of political rights of indigenous women. As such, the committee will focus on ensuring political rights under the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, and reinforcing the position of women in local and national political life.
