ANC 3rd Motion

Posted in: on 20/10/2022 | Categorised as

  1. Hon.members, South African women have achieved emancipation in the many
    rights they enjoy.
  2. However, empowerment is everyones job. Government is a key enabler to
    empower vulnerable groups. The only way is through budget appropriation
    therefore the Minority Front supports this motion.
  3. It is hoped that with a women Premier and majority women cabinet, the Beijing
    platform 1995 resolutions will be pushed.
  4. The 2030 SDG 5 of gender equality can only be achieved if we have gender
    equity first, this means that the KZN Legislature must establish a Womens
    Budget Committee, fund adequate training and use to foster partnerships.
  5. Shelved plans that would have empowered women e.g.: The Women and Child
    Hospital programme, pink public transport and other women only
    programmes needs revival.
  6. A complete assessment must be done by Treasury, Office of the Premier and
    Social Development on the womens organisations funded. Only an evaluation will direct funds to organisations that are making a difference to reduce gender inequality.
  7. Funding must follow the phases of a womens lifecycle from programmes for
    the girlchild, youth and student life, marriage and worklife then senior,
    retirement life. Preventative budgeting gives better performance outcomes.
  8. Finally, the OTP must hold an annual Young Womens Achiever Awards to
    recognise and promote the potential of women at their prime.
  9. Budget reprioritisation will motivate women to develop more than a fixed or
    growth mindset to a motivational mindset. Hon.members, women must
    support women.
  10. Thank you.
