The Minister reiterated that there is a need for frank conversations on the socio-economic empowerment and advancement of women, girls and women with disabilities in South Africa.

“At the core of our mandate as a department is ensuring that women, youth and people with disabilities play an effective role in representing, owning and controlling income-generating assets within the economy.” “We must consider their participation as essential to guarantee that the objectives of the Reconstruction and Economic Recovery Plan are met.”

“The recent floods in KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape paint a devastating picture of the effects of choosing to ignore climate change.”

“Now, more than ever, the green economy provides the necessary sustainable frameworks in which we can rebuild our economy in an inclusive way.

We must explore the economic, social and environmental potential of the green economy to promote gender equality.” The Minister went on to say that 28 years after democracy, women continue to be on the periphery of the country’s development agenda.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened existing inequalities, leaving millions of women on the receiving end of high levels of poverty, rising food and fuel prices, climate change, unemployment, and high rates of gender-based violence and femicide (GBVF)”.

“We are at a time of crisis where we must act collectively to defend the democratic gains that the women of 1956 have worked so hard to achieve.”

“Not long ago, young women in Krugersdorp were raped while filming a music video.

Unemployment is high in South Africa and hearing that these young women were accosted by a group of men who raped them and stole their belongings is despicable.” “We appreciate the interventions of the SAPS in the apprehension of suspects and we hope that there will be convictions soon.

We are also grateful that the young women are receiving psychosocial support to get them and their families through this ordeal.” In the words of the stalwart of the struggle, Mme Ida Mntwana: “Let us go out as a united force, let us take our place in the fight for freedom.

If we all put our shoulders behind the wheel, the time will come when we will be proud of the acts of women.

Let us unite, let us move forward with courage and determination.”
