Glad to know that you are a motswana and thanks for your attempts in wanting to connect. What is your voice with regards to the women of Botswana? Do you think they have better representation in different sectors of the country? I believe that although equality for all is by theory far much preached concept, an effort to balance every sectors in terms of gender but to me, it seems that just a is done whilst majority of the management or executive positions are occupied or dominated by us(men)...not that i condone it, i think we must preach exercise equity and help elevate women to executive platforms.

Women in Botswana

I must say Botswana has done quite a lot looking at where we are coming from and it is still striving to ensure that women do get equal opportunities as men.

But there is still room for improvement.One thing that's been bothering me, is the speed we are moving at. This week I attended a meeting where PRESENTATION ON ICPD+20 ,COUNTRY REPORT – BOTSWANA was done.One thing that disappointed me was that, examples which were used of women in power ,were of women who occupied those positions 8 years ago.Which means since then no woman rose to those heights risen .Which is sad I believe we as a country we can do more than this.

I agree with u. Most executive positions are still held by men, but the question is?
does that mean we don't have what it takes or is it an issue of inequality?

I believe women in Botswana still need to be empowered in political leadership,both the candidates and the voters, for us to reach the 30% representation. The other thing that needs serious attention is the Gender Based Violence which takes place in political arena.
