Should there be more women in parliament?

Female representation alone without changing the partriachy sys wch characterise mst african institutions is nt the answer but the real battle is socio-cultural, we might have an all women cabnet but that wont change the predicament facing the ordinary women in the street.

As long as we dont change our mindset we shall remain far from solvng ths gender equity or equality issue. Afta all gender sensitivity is mo than just the male and female biological dichotomy, its in the mind so in as much as women representation imyt be essential, the real is in the mind. – Martin-Ngon Magidi
