FROM THE UCTP FAMILY


International Women's Month

Takahi Guaitiao (Greetings relatives):On the 30th anniversary of International Women’s Day (IWD) and International Women’s Month, the United Confederation of Taino People (UCTP) pauses to recognize, commend, and celebrate the endeavors and achievements of women around the world.The UCTP is aware that women’s rights activists, especially indigenous women, continue to face exclusion, harassment, abuse, sexual assault, and gender-based violence often on a daily basis. At times, in their critique of human rights violations, women may also inadvertently challenge local customs, culture and religion, risking not only physical abuse but being ostracized by their own communities.With that in mind, the UCTP welcomes the theme of the International Women’s Day (IWD) 2007, “Ending Impunity for Violence against Women”, as this focus will assist in highlighting the fact that to fully enjoy human rights for all and to achieve a universal culture of peace, active and equal participation of women must be assured in all aspects of life on the local, national, and international levels.
In the Spirit of Kasike Anakaona,Roberto Mucaro BorreroPresident and Chairman,UCTP Regional Coordinating Officehttp://www.uctp.org/
