She said this in her address to the 59th session of the Commission on the Status of Women at United Nations Headquarters in New York on Monday.

Kaliati, who spoke on behalf of Sadc bloc, said the member States have made considerable progress by increasing women’s visibility and participation in various sectors.

Said Kaliati: “Since 1995, Sadc member States have witnessed dramatic improvements in the status of women. Their participation in politics and the economy having risen across the region. Some Sadc member States have also recorded significant improvements in women’s involvement in peacekeeping missions.

“Girls and women’s access to education has also steadily risen with most of the Sadc member States achieving gender parity at primary level. In the area of health, access to health for women has improved which has contributed to the net reduction of maternal and infant mortality rates.” —Reporting by Jabulani Kamngoya
