Stop torturing women in politics!!!

Women activists are calling on political parties and leaders to ensure that women are given equal treatment with their male counterparts when it comes to elective politics.

Prima Kwagala

Executive Director, Women’s Probonal Initiative Prima Kwagala says historically, women have been politically discriminated against adding that the gender equality provisions in the law have not changed much.


Kwagala says the provisions of the constitution that offer the same political rights for both women and men are only theoretical.
“Extra funding should be accorded to women; they should be offered security because equity is not the same as equality.

If you are going to help women be equal to men you have to give them an extra foot because men started long time ago they have more ground than women.

They are socially already accepted as leaders and decision makers. Its not the case for women. Women have to work like five times as hard as the men to convince the electorates.”
