Simmering gender revolution

The Southern Times - Feb 21, 2017

Namibia is ranked among the top 10 countries seen as advancing women in political decision-making structures. This milestone was achieved mainly due to the introduction of a 50/50 gender representation quota by the country’s ruling Swapo Party. Swapo decided to change its constitution to ensure that all party leadership structures have a zebra style representation system. This was the case for the party’s 2014 National Assembly elections’ party list. As a result, Namibia’s women representation in the National Assembly almost doubled from 24.4 percent to 41.3 percent, which paved the way for more women to serve in the Namibian Parliament.
