Gender Minister, Elizabeth Phiri says the government in collaboration with relevant stakeholders is formulating a legal framework which will compel employers to employ women in workplaces.

 

The latest survey by the World Economic Forum indicates that it will take about 217 years for the global community to attain gender parity in all spheres of human endeavour.

 

Speaking in an interview with 5fm news, Phiri notes with concern that most employers refrain from employing women due to unreasonable conditions thereby promoting inequality in the country

 

The minister adds that it is significant that the 50-50 gender representation in politics and workplaces is attained as this will enhance productivity.

 

Government’s vision on gender is in line with the SADC protocol on gender and development and ‘vision 2030’ aimed at achieving gender equity and equality in the socio-economic development process by 2030.
