Learn 6 - Women and they rigth to speak and take part in political activities

75% of Latin American Opinion Leaders Believe Gender Parity in Poli...

ECLAC carried out its first survey of this type at the end of 2008. Then, 82% of those consulted said that "it was necessary to adopt legislative measures to attain political parity among men and women". This year, the figure dropped to 74%. Similarly, in 2008, 77% of those polled agreed with "electoral laws that establish quotas to favor the representation of women", while now, only 67% of those consulted believed likewise.

Mary Wollstonecraft (April 27, 1759-September 10, 1797), a revolutionary advocate of equal rights for women, was an inspiration for both the nineteenth-century and twentieth-century women's movements. Wollstonecraft was not merely a woman's rights advocate. She asserted the innate rights of all people, whom she thought victims of a society that assigned people their roles, comforts, and satisfactions according to the false distinctions of class, age, and gender.

In Paraguay
The long billiard cue fights of the Paraguayan women for the right to vote, it had its victory on July 5, 1961, when the Law promulgated 704 of " Constitutional laws of the Woman " who before had been sanctioned by the Representatives' Chamber at the time. This one meant an important step in the struggle for the equality of gender in the history of the Paraguay. Today of 38 positions in the senators' chamber 7 are women.

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out.

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
