Minister of Women, Gender and Community Development Honourable Sthembiso Nyoni says the gap between Zimbabwean men and women in accessing resources and opportunities remains worrisome.
Addressing the media ahead of the International Women’s Day Commemorations in Harare yesterday, Honourable Nyoni said despite the efforts by government to promote equal opportunities amongst men and women, the participation of women in decision making platforms remains low.
Nyoni added that there is need for women to participate in economic empowerment programs, so as to be empowered with skills and knowledge necessary for development.
Meanwhile, the International Women’s Day Commemorations are being held in Nkayi, Matabeleland North today under the theme #PressforProgress.
