WINNING OF THE SADC GENDER PROTOCOL SUMMIT AND AWARDS 2015
Women In Politics (WIP) is the proud winner of the 2015 SADC Gender Protocol Summit and awards in the 50/50 Governance category. This category recognises the special measures taken at local or national level to ensure women’s equal representation and participation in decision-making in all areas, especially in elections in the SADC region. The summit was organised by Gender Links, an NGO renowned for its large footprint in campaigning for the promotion of gender equality through the 28 targets set by the SADC protocol on Gender and Development. Article 13 of the SADC protocol requires member states to adopt specific legislative measures and others strategies to enable women to have equal opportunities with men to participate in all electoral processes. Although Mauritius did not sign the SADC protocol, WIP has made it its mission to encourage more women to participate in all levels of government.
