Sanatu Zambang Podcast Women Representation in Ghanaian Politics


'' When you talk about female members of parliament not catching the luxury tax on sanitary pads, now you have to ask yourself, what kind of women do we have in parliament? That's why we need proper representation, we need women from all works of life representing us in leadership. Anger is a legitimate response to any form discrimination. I think there is often a misunderstanding when we talk about gender issues. There is this kind of personalisation of issues that i think does a disservice to it. We are talking about systems here, it is not about men doing something. It s about the system in place. When we talk of patriarchal system some of the most ardent supporters, most of the ardent defenders of patriarchal systems are women '' --- Umar MF
