Women Missing in the Corridors of Power

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Heads of State ended their 35th summit on 18 August 2015 with a bland communique congratulating countries that have made progress in increasing women's political representation and urging others to follow suit.

According to Colleen Lowe Morna, “It's typical of this all-boys club to equate women in politics to gender equality, even in the crucial year that the 28 targets of the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development expire…”

Lowe Morna maintains that serious political will is needed to take the region forward by aligning this instrument to the Sustainable Development Goals.
