Westhrin, told journalists that South Sudan needs time to consider women’s rights.
She adds that’s NPA projects will tackle on supporting women in terms of economic independency.
Killi encourages women to play a role in the implementation of the peace process and they should be part of the political positions.
Humanitarian worker Diana Iman Thomas says women would have a huge role play in the implementation of the peace process because some have strong academic qualification.
She adds that society does not allow women to discuss serious issues with men on one table.
