Foro de Mujeres para la Integración Centroamericana (FMICA)-Costa Rica
Foro de Mujeres para la Integración Centroamericana [FMICA] was created in 1996 in Nicaragua and has offices throughout Central America. In 1998, the forum with the various actors of civil society urges a process for the construction of a proposed policy entitled Strategic Agenda para la Equidad de Genero in Central America. The objectives of the system integration of Central America are: peace, democracy and development. For women in Central America, the construction of democracy and peace means to guide regional development from the perspective of gender equality.
This approach involves:
- Recognizing the great diversity of women in Central America;
- The defense and expansion of women's human right;
- Ensure that women participate in decision making to promote effective action to eradicate poverty, particularly the feminization of poverty;
- Eliminate gender inequality in all its manifestations.
