“Women builders of #peace: Thanks to @IrelandColombia [the Embassy of Ireland in Colombia] for listening to @nydia_erika [the Nydia Erika Bautista Foundation] and women seeking families of forced disappearance in a historic moment: #Today the first Bill of Law in #LatinAmerica was filed in #Colombia that protects the rights of women seekers.”
Pares has reported:
“The Comprehensive Bill on the Rights of Women Seekers of the Disappeared was filed in Congress [on October 19], which protects and recognizes the work of the rights of women and seekers of victims of disappearance.
This file had the support of the Nydia Erika Bautista Foundation for Human Rights and Congressmen Iván Cepeda, Alirio Uribe Muñoz, María José Pizarro Rodríguez and Senator Gloria Flórez.
The senator for the Historical Pact and Defender of human rights and life, Gloria Flórez, mentioned that women and seekers of disappeared persons are builders of collective memory, truth and peace. For this reason, this Bill guaranteeing their rights was filed.”
