What should be done to see that underrespresented people's views are heard?

Recommended Posts

Guest Lis, UK

The first thing that needs to be done is to identify which people are unrepresented and why.  Once these groups are identified it is then possible to look at the barriers to their voice being heard and identify how these can be removed.  Common barriers are lack of education, lack of status, lack of confidence, lack of belief that they will be able to make a difference, poor health and lack of time because they have to work so hard to survive.  Different strategies are needed for different groups to engage.

You have to be very carefull who you speak too. You could be labelled as a troublemaker if you speak too others if they hold a different opinion. I believe in safety in numbers.

The members of the parliament are the ones who must help us.

I think that We need to utilize all platforms availed to us and the very people who are underrepresented need to be empowered to come up. This is because we may try to fight for equal opportunity for the underrepresented when they are just seated on themselves and don't see the need to join the fight which makes us some times end up achieving less. 

So the underrepresented need to also equally join in to fight for their rights

Knowledge is power. Awareness-raising is very key to increasing representation of the underrepresented

Maybe it's safer for people to not have their views heard with the current state of politics?

I think in terms of representation in sport it depends what sport...men are under represented in synchronised swimming... and women in many other sports like football

True so if we utilize people's talents, this can be of great importance.

I think petitions can be quiet good to raise awareness. To then be discussed / actioned.

well i think that can work well since it involves many and also some bit of signing to make their views formal

Good point but how do we make sure they are mixing in an equal way so that the underrepresented people don't feel they have to keep quiet for their own protection and to fit in?

The government should set rules that are in favor of everyone despite their status so that the underrepresnted people feel they are protected and listened to.

Yes i agree with you because you need to know people's problems before you get a solution to them.

No i don't agree with you because it brings insecurity in the country as it may lead to chaos like for example people striking.

Very true through radio and TV talk shows underrepresented people's views are heard as this will lead to the community and entire Country to get to know them.
