At the very heart of our movement’s struggle, there is a fierce desire to correct injustices, to ensure that all our compatriots enjoy the same privileges before the law or the same opportunities in life regardless of their gender. In Haiti, women’s rights are still often violated. In the world of work, with equal skills, Haitian women earn less than men. They are the object of all kinds of abuse including sexual abuse that the social body tends to minimize.
The movement is committed to fighting body and soul against inequality between men and women. We will focus on the significant disparities between men and women in terms of employment opportunities, since unemployment particularly affects young women. Women often continue to work longer than men when you consider both paid and unpaid work. If we want to advance equality between men and women, we will have to fill these gaps.
Human beings are equal. This equality is even the first foundation of our values. From this flow our ideal for social justice. Gender differences should not be the basis of any hierarchy in the political, economic, social fields. Our movement is part of the continuity of the fight of the fathers of the fatherland for a country where it is good to live for both women and men.
We have certainly made slight progress on gender equality. However, we must continue these efforts so that this equality is effective in our ways of doing things. We will put in place practices and policies that will promote the full participation of women in public political affairs.
