In the middle of the discussion (Blanca Martínez).
Increasingly, people are being awared of obstruction and violence women suffer everyday in the whole world. Even though there are communities whose religion or culture don’t allow them to think at least about women rights, feminism is increasing its influence. And this is the reason why delegates came here for. It’s a sunny morning in Móstoles. Delegates seem nervous, but they improve their participation as the debate progress.
In spite of the problems related to the rules (they’ve had to sit and stand up several times before the session 2), the second debate starts with education leading the way. As every country accept that education is a human right, they all coincide on keeping on improving the issue by educating in equality or erradicating stereotypes, as Indonesia says. When they bring education in eastern countries up, Qatar illusrate that they all should take care of the empower of women. However, Egypt considers that “it’s not about stupid religions, we should takkle the topic from the perspective of respecting towards communities”. They all agree. However, applauses increase when Mexico says that “we are here to bring measures, so say something “.
By the time the chairs deny a motion proposed by USA, the country leaves the room and influence of religion get into. And it starts dynamicly: Chile believe that people should be less religious, and North Korea support its thoughts suggesting that countries have to take measures against religion, which is the real problem. Pakistan, by the way, express that they want to introduce campaigns to concern people, but they must be moderated, “because religion is very arranged in our population and it would be difficult”. Delegates cannot agree and resolutions look like they’re going to take some time.
Several motions about child marriage flood the room, and resolutions finally come in the third unmoderated cocus of the day, between hugs, carnations and some laughs. Delegates begin to debate widely and opinions flow smoothly and naturally now.
We are completely sure that it’s essential to be concerned about problems suffered by women constantly. But now we all know, we should promote measures which could really help women to be in equallity. Our delegates are trying to, and even though they’ve had some problems at the beggining, we could bet that they will agree great resolutions. And “the best way to do it, is to do it!”.
