Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said Zimbabwe has made good progress in ensuring gender equality in a lot of areas.
Mutsvangwa said this on the sidelines of the 63rd Commission on the Status of Women underway in the United States. She said the Second Republic under President Mnangagwa is committed to address gender inequality. Said Mutsvangwa:
The Second Republic as you can see has tried to address gender disparities such as the introduction of women microfinance bank where women can access finance without hustles such as collateral. More and more women are now heading powerful Ministries such as Defence and Information and also our President went a mile further by appointing five out of 10 Ministers of State making it 50-50 representation in that sector. These Ministers are here attending this conference and this is an opportunity for them to take ideas back to their provinces as they grapple with the issue of devolution and this certainly includes women.
