Muchas gracias Margarita, muy interesante. Mi pregunta tiene que ver con el proceso de liderazgo y representación politica: las mujeres de una comunidad o ejidio aunque no sean ejidatarias pueden ser votadas para representar su asamblea? y luego un puesto de liderazgo en su comunidad es el primer paso para lograr un puesto politico a nivel municipal? como funciona?
Alexander von Hildebrand
04:40:24
Muy buenos días. Dra, introducir el feminismo en comunidades indigenas para fortalecer los derechos de las mujeres, debe ser. Pero, en que medida estaremos también debilitando las organizaciones que ya están bajo mucha presión? Como negociar esa aparente contradicción? Gracias

Question to Prof Andrea.: What strategy can you suggest or recommend for a conservative context like the Northern Nigeria where culture does not really permit much equality drive between males and females In terms of their community roles and societal obligations? Thank you
Anna Jenderedjian
05:02:17
Prof. Cornwall, thank you for an incredible presentation. I wonder what are your thoughts on the situations when the state stops "caring" about women and the institutions, perhaps even deliberately, start failing women's empowerment goals and commitment to gender equality?
Giulia Gagliardi
05:04:17
So inspiring, thank you Andrea
Lourdes Orlando
05:04:59
So powerful! So great to see how community engagement and women's own testimonies share how these transformative experiences enable the capabilities that were so important to Nussbaum and Sen, on the ground and with each other.

@Olusola Ojo NE Brazil was just like this and the programme brought about change in that context. The key is to use education as a tool for consciousness raising amongst men as well as women - the challenge is getting people in but conditional cash transfers can be a pathway of change if the conditions include attending training.
Maria Angela Villalba
05:09:55
Thank you Andrea. How much and how far the state can do as enabler of women's empowerment. How are the women faring under the new government?
Huda Alsahi
05:10:39
Many thanks for your questions, we will address them in the last part of the webinar
andrea cornwall
05:11:14
@Anna - yes, backlash is real and it’s happening everywhere including in the UK, and I think this is where international organisations and national civic organisations are needed, including to build feminist political power to win elections and change governments!
andrea cornwall
05:12:33
@Maria, this is a really interesting question - and down to how much progressive local government can do in the context of reactionary national government
Katrien Holvoet
05:13:48
political power (at decentralised and national level) is a matter of lobbying and get your interests and needs on the agenda, what are the mechanisms of women lobbyist that work, which skills do we need to strengthen and how can dimitra clubs influence political power and link with decentralisation processes
Adriano Campolina - FAO
05:14:02
Dear Andrea, great to hear your presentation. Can you expand on empowerment strategies adopted to address power inequities as women engaged on networking. How transformational collective action was nurtured?

@diane they worked with children through the childcare provision that was part of the programme - but it would be worth evaluating that and the impact of children seeing their mothers gain more freedom, agency and respect. Anecdotally, women talked of how their children had seen that there were alternatives to the jobs their parents had as casual labourers on the sugar cane plantations. In that respect, it expanded their horizons of possibility.
Andrea Sanchez
05:15:12
Merci Ali, on va le dire aux collègues

Regarding to food security which is a part of the general security in Libya. Most of Economic activities are standing by export even we have multiple resources beside the oil. High numbers of widows and Orphans resulted from the conflict, loosing a lot of benefits which they gained during Gaddafi's regime whether in care or within law. we had an Agriculture project all over Libya with Training and Empower centers for the Rural communities...everything collapsed after 2011
Alexander von Hildebrand
05:29:37
Boys and men too, are very often ignorant about menstrual issues.This fact is many a times the base for fake interpretations, sometimes called “cultural values”, that keep and had to women’s rights suppression. Engaging boys and men in achieving gender equality efforts is a must, also because some of the root causes of gender discrimination are structural and affect everyone.

Legal paternity leave is a tremendous tool to allow men understand what is child caring about, where possible.
Leisa Perch
05:48:17
spot on Andrea. I am in Barbados and working largely in the Caribbean and there are conversations i can have in rural Mozambique and Gambia that are not as easy to have in the Caribbean.
Leisa Perch
05:49:47
we also need to engage women on gender. it is not automatic. some of the deep resistance we face is from women as well as from men. something we also need to accept and prepare for.
andrea cornwall
05:50:36
@leisa you are so right - women can be the ones guarding and reproducing patriarchal values. Deniz Kandiyoti’s “Bargaining with Patriarchy” has a really interesting analysis of this.

FROM MARGARITA:
Andrea Sanchez
05:56:58
From Margarita: "Me gusto mucho a participación de todas y todos debo decir que especialmente la de Andrea, Bafana y Hajnaka asnillos con la de y todos, considero que es muy alentador ver lo que se está haciendo en el mundo por los derechos de las mujeres que significan la transformación de un sistema que necesita cambiar por el bien de hombres y mujeres que desean el bien común y la protección de hombres, mujeres, niño¡as y niños así como la naturaleza. Es importante pensar en una nueva redistribución de las riquezas y para ello es importante la nueva distribución del poder, las riquezas y la inteligencia de quienes han sido oprimidas por siglos. Es un gran reto para el cambio y lo estamos dando, desde dientes frentes."
