————– Kalabo District Commission Masela Chinyama says President Edgar Lungu had already interpreted this year’s International Women Day-IWD theme by appointing a woman Vice President.
This year’s theme is ‘Gender is my Agenda, make it happen’.
Mrs Chinyama said President Lungu’s demonstration gave a clear picture that the Patriotic Front administration was in full support of women.
She urged parents in homes to support a girl child to aim high as there was room for advancement for girls in Zambia as demonstrated by President Lungu.
And Kalabo District Commission observed that power in Zambia like the rest of other nations was mostly vested in men, a scenario she said disadvantaged women.
She noted that as a result, women were bound to face challenges in decision making.
Ms. Chinyama said it was imperative that men took keen interest in women affairs so that together they could make it happen.
She said gender matters were beneficial to all.
