Low involvement of women in gender programs worries govt

23

Government says gender programs which are being implemented in the country leaves out women who are also the target group.

Minister of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare Patricia Kaliati says women especially those in rural are not involved in programmes which promote their own rights.

“If we want good implementation of these plans we need to involve them. They have to know what we are doing for them and do so not through the media; they have to be part and parcel of the process,” she said.

Kaliati:We need change.

On her part, UNFPA Deputy Representative Rogaia Abdelrahim said promoting gender equality and women’s rights “demand renewed multisectoral approach that provides effective collective responses.”

Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) Commissioner Bertha Sefu said women involvement in gender issues is critical for effective implementation of the Gender Equality Act.

Sefu also observed that women accounted for about half of the country’s population and therefore key to the successful attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Government recently launched the Gender Equality Act Implementation and Monitoring Plan (2016-2020).

The goal of the plan is to promote gender equality, equal integration, influence, empowerment, dignity and opportunities for men and women in all functions of society and to provide for connected matters.
