Goal 5 on gender eqaulity,women empowerment

Virginia Muwanigwa Correspondent.

As the African Union (AU) meeting get underway in South Africa, the issue of gender equality and women and girls empowerment should be one of the key discussions.This follows the adoption by the continental body of the theme as part of its Africa 2063 development agenda.

In principle this means gender equality will transcend all sectors the AU deals with, from politic and governance to social welfare and budgeting of it’s programmes.While applauding the promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment in principle, it remains to be seen how this will translate into reality in practice.
