A Message to End Violence Against Women

[Tetun below]

Mrs. Maria Imaculada Guterres, the Executive Director of Alola Foundation, a member of Rede Feto, represented Rede Feto to participate in the Kafe Dader talk-show, which was organized and facilitated by ADRA Timor-Leste in collaboration with the Rede Feto. The program was live through Kafé Dadeer/Morning Coffee on RTTL-EP channel and took place on November 30, 2021.

This talk-show invited the key speakers from Ministry of Social Solidarity and Inclusion (MSSI), Victims Police Unit (VPU) and the Rede Feto within the circumstance of the 16 days of activism campaign to end violence against women and girls. Mrs. Maria Imaculada Guterres pointed out that the 16 days campaign to end violence against women and girls is very important to raise the awareness and sensitize the people that domestic violence and gender-based violence is public crime and must be reported when seeing it.

She added that the violence against women is prevalent within the family and therefore the action to ending the violence against women should begin from the family through the community. She also highlighted that ending the violence against women and girls requires everyone to understand that women are the key to peace. If they want peace to remain within the family, they need to uphold the dignity of women by appreciating what they do and by giving them opportunities to actively participate in social and economic activities including competing for high-level positions.

She reiterated that one of the main factors contributing to the violence against women and girls in the community includes the practice of patriarchal system that still dominant in our country especially in remote areas. Therefore, Rede Feto and its partners have a big mandate to jointly seek for ways to overcome. This includes providing more training and capacity building to communities to increase their knowledge and awareness to contribute to ending violence against women and girls.

Sra Maria highlighted that women’s participation in social and economic activities is progressing comparing to the past, as today we can see women participating at high-level political life including in the National Parliament we can see a wide range of women participating. It is very significant when compared to the situation in the past where women were not active and dependent to men’s decisions, including small decision to buy vegetable to improve children’s nutrition. However, she added that women in remote areas still face the situation where they are dependent on men and have no opportunities to contribute ideas and make decisions.

In response to the challenges above, she called on to all women that this is the time for women to live in a safe and healthy environment. This is also the time for women to be involved in various aspect of life, especially in political and economic aspects. Therefore, she asked all women, especially girls to learn more in order to engage more and compete for higher level.  She challenged the mothers to participate in economic activities, to have their own income so that they can contribute to the family and take decisions within the family and at community level.

She emphasized that Rede Feto really needs support from partners to carry out activities with good quality; therefore she hoped that ADRA Timor-Leste can continue supporting Rede Feto through Hakbi’it Feto Project in order to strengthen women participation in social and economic activities.  Rede Feto continues their activities in capacity building and community awareness raising including women economic empowerment and giving opportunities to girls to ensure equal participation at all levels.
