“We are inviting the many women, both elected and appointed authorities, as well as ex-leaders and ex-official, the city and the entire department - there are going to be many women reviewing some very important issues," Flores said.
"Today, women are thinking of better days for our Bolivia, for our homeland that needs and should prepare depatriarchalization proposals to deliver to our country and improve development," said Flores.
According to Estefania Morales, the vice-minister of Equal Opportunities, the demands are a collaborative effort by women from nine departments. They target shared concerns over political, social, economic, cultural, communication, equality, justice, and gender violence issues.
