Martelly say The Ha itian woman is the f oundation of our soc iety

Out of Haiti – Part 1

An incredible 3 days with Haitian women who put their hearts and their minds together to development their National Platform for Women which was presented to President Michel Martelly.

With gender-based violence on the rise, increasing desperate living conditions, and the low level of women in politics(3% elected in parliament), Haitian women are demanding more from their male leaders.

While we were there, the prime minister resigned. 3 candidates were put forward as his replacement. Among them, a very qualified woman from the business sector. His choice: the current Foreign Minister, a man.

However, the President shows his sup port to the women’s platform and his door is open.
