CALLS have been made to women and youths to make their submissions as the Constitution Commission continues to hear submissions in Suva today.
Penny Moore, a member of the Commission during an interview with The Fiji Times yesterday said they were expecting submissions from the two groups however, only one woman had made submissions to the commission earlier this week in Raiwai.
Ms Moore said women and youths needed to realise this would be the only opportunity where they could address some of the issues affecting them in terms of decision making and their rights.
She said women may have multiple reasons as to why they should not be part of the process or maybe because of their traditional role, but that should not be a problem as the constitution should be for everyone regardless of gender, race or age.
"We really do encourage women and youths to come out and make recommendations because particularly young people have suffered so much," Ms Moore said.
