MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has honored women for their incredible capacity to organize, lead and achieve.
Posting on Twitter while commemorating International Women’s day, Chamisa said women are every society’s backbone and nation builders who carry society to create an equal future.
“Thankful to all women who strive and fight tMo make a difference and make our nation great. Women’s capacity to organize, lead and achieve is incredible. Women are society’s backbone, nation builders who carry and sustain societies to create an equal future,” said Chamisa.
Meanwhile, Platform for Youth and Community Development (PYCD) said women continue to be at the receiving end as the country is drawn into the battle of survival.
PYCD said COVID-19 lockdowns worsened gender based violence denting hopes of achieving gender equality.
“The adoption of lock downs as measure to contain Covid-19 has brought more harm than good to women. The hope of achieving gender equity has been dashed as cases of gender based violence continue to rise globally,” PYCD said in a statement.
