On 27 April 2009, The Mira Centre launched their voting campaign “Speak out!”. As an important part of this campaign, members of the community and relevant Norwegian politicians participated in a forum, held at The MiRA Centre, to discuss issues and concerns related to women with minority backgrounds in Norway. The highlights of the discussion and the opinions of the various political parties were then distributed to minority women in order to enable them to make informed decisions on Election Day. The themes discussed at the forum included security of rights for minority women, violence against women, equality and access to public services.
