Duties as President of the Forum of Women Parliamentarians


Nakuru County Senator Susan Kihika today moderated a parity debate on “Ensuring that children enjoy their rights and grow up protected from violence” at the ongoing International Parliamentarians Union forum.

The senator led the debate as the President of the Forum of Women Parliamentarians of the IPU.

The organizers of the forum observed that as the world celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, there was a need to focus on the rights of children who are the future generation and living force of all countries on the planet.

One of the aims of the Parity Debates is to foster dialogue between women and men at the IPU and encourage them to debate issues of common interest together.
