The 1st Meeting of the ICAPP Women’s Wing

(Baku, April 5, 2013)



Appendix III:

Baku Statement on Women in Asia
We, the woman politicians representing twenty-night political parties of Azerbaijan, Cambodia, China, India, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Iraq, Japan, Republic of Korea, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanon, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Thailand and Turkey, attended the 1st Meeting of the Women’s Wing of the International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP) which was held in Baku, Azerbaijan under the auspice of the Yeni (New) Azerbaijan Party (YAP) during April 4 to 6, 2013. The meeting was also attended by representatives of two political parties of Nicaragua and Sudan and representatives of six woman organizations of Bangladesh, Philippines and Turkey as observers.
The meeting was conducted under three themes: promotion of women’s rights, women’s role in sustainable development of societies and women’s role in promoting global and regional integration. The program of the meeting and the list of participants are attached as Appendixes I and II.
We agreed to the need to build extended networks among woman politicians and activists in Asia to address various challenges in advancing gender equality in the region, and confirmed the decision made at the Special Workshop on Woman Politicians during the 7th General Assembly of the ICAPP, held in Baku in November 2012, to establish the ICAPP Women’s Wing and hold its meeting on a regular basis.
In line with the primary objectives of the ICAPP to promote exchanges and cooperation between political parties, we agreed that the ICAPP Women’s Wing will be one of the main fora for woman politicians and activists in the region to exchange information and share diverse experiences on the difficulties and obstacles faced by women, and suggested policy interventions “to advance the goals of equality, development and peace for all women everywhere in the interest of all humanity,” as determined in the Beijing Declaration and the Platform for Action adopted at the 4th World Conference on Women in September 1995.
In particular, we reaffirmed that “the empowerment and advancement of women, including the right to freedom of thought, conscience, religion and belief,” and “full participation of women on the basis of equality in all spheres of society including participation in the political decision-making process and access to power,” will contribute not only to realizing their full potential in society and shaping our lives in accordance with their own aspirations, but also to achieving equality, development and peace.
In this regard, we urged our respective governments to implement the international conventions related to human rights to fulfill gender equality and eliminate all forms of discrimination against women, and U.N. Resolution 1325 of October 2000 on women, peace, and security to increase participation of women at all levels of decision-making, national, regional, and international.
We also expressed our strong support for the proposal made by the United Nations on International Women’s Day on March 8, 2012 to convene the 5th World Conference on Women (WCW) in 2015. We agreed that convening the 5th WCW is important to look closely not only at the implementation of the landmark Beijing Platform for Action but also at the emerging issues and the enormous changes taking place in the world which are having both positive and other implications for women.
We endorsed the ICAPP proposal for the establishment of an Asian All-Women Anti-Poverty Bank for small loans for micro-finance business of as low as $500 or $1,000, for women historically have very high repayment records and since the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and other global and regional financial institutions lend only to governments and mainly for large infrastructure projects. This will reduce poverty in the rural areas and in the urban slums.
We welcomed the offer made by the two major political parties of the Republic of Korea, the governing Saenuri (New Frontier) Party and the opposition Democratic Untied Party, to co-host the ICAPP Special Conference on Women in Seoul in September 2013 and agreed to render our full support for the success of the conference. We also expressed our hope that the special conference in Seoul will lay firm ground for convening the 5th WCW in 2015.
We endorsed the election, at the 7th General Assembly of the ICAPP in November 2012, of Hon. Malahat Ibrahimqizi, representing the YAP and Hon. Park In-sook, representing the Saenuri Party of the Republic of Korea, as Co-Chairpersons of the ICAPP Women’s Wing until its 2nd meeting. We also elected representatives of the Communist Party of China, Islamic Motalefeh Party of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Nepali Congress Party of Nepal, Pheu Thai Party of Thailand, and Justice and Development Party (AK Parti) of Turkey as Vice Chairpersons. List of the Bureau of the ICAPP Women’s Wing is attached as Appendix III. The venue and time for the 2nd meeting will be decided through consultation at the Standing Committee of the ICAPP.
Last but not least, we expressed our gratitude to the Yeni Azerbaijan Party and the Government of Azerbaijan for hosting this historic meeting and for providing warm hospitality during our stay.
