Lilia Labidi, Minister of Women’s issues, presented an advertisement campaign to motivate women to vote for the October 23rd election of the Constituent Assembly.

Every Tunisian woman has the right to vote. “I Must Go There,” proclaims a slogan of the advertisement campaign.

The campaign will be launched by radios and Tunisian national TV channels at the beginning of the electoral campaign. “Our goal is to make women aware of their voting duty,” said Labidi. “Development is not possible without democracy and excluding women from the public sphere.”

Four advertising posters presented women from different social classes at work: a dressmaker in a textile factory, women working in fields in rural areas, a veiled student, and a professor teaching at a university. All of them have the same intention: they are going to vote, and they are also aware of their responsibilities of building a democratic country.
