"It’s 2022 And No Country Has Achieved Gender Equality," - United Nations

The United Nations (UN) has revealed that no country in the world has achieved gender equality in politics and other sectors.

The UN Women’s report on rankings of achievements on gender equality states that in 2022, no country made it to the top 10. UN Women said in a tweet this week:

Reality check: It’s 2022 and no country has achieved gender equality, nor is close to it.

Let’s put women’s rights on the agenda and ask world leaders to step it up for women and girls.

In a recently released report titled 20 Years Later: A Country Study on the Implementation of UNSCR 1325 in Zimbabwe, UN Women Zimbabwe, however, said the Southern African country could be applauded for its “commendable” progress in ensuring that the constitutional provisions on the promotion of women’s rights and gender equality were prioritised as part of its development agenda.

UN Women, however, observed that there were still some gaps noted in terms of achieving the full realisation of women’s rights.

The UN said although Zimbabwe had not yet officially announced that it recognised the United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325, it was committed to all initiatives towards the achievement of women empowerment. Said UN Women:

There is a need for the government of Zimbabwe to reform certain laws and abolish certain cultural practices that violate women’s and children’s rights, and the values of the Women Peace and Security agenda. These challenges illustrate to some extent the difficulties faced by the judicial system as certain cultural practices are no longer relevant in the realisation of women’s rights in a contemporary society as the access presented demonstrates.

The UN also urged Zimbabwe to organise periodical targeted activities to raise awareness on the prevention, protection, and participation of women, and programming of activities within all line ministries.

He does have a fair point. Some of the treatment towards woman is just way too harsh

I DO NOT THINK THERE IS A COUNTRY WHICH IS GOING TO ACHIEVE GENDER EQUALITY IN THE NEAR FUTURE, PERHAPS NOT EVEN CENTURIES TO COME.

WOMEN HAVE BEEN PLAYING SECOND FIDDLE TO MEN SINCE THEY WERE CREATED BY THE ALMIGHTY. BEFORE I TAKE YOU TO THE PRESENT SITUATION, LET ME TAKE YOU TO YESTERYEAR SITUATION IN PASSING.

YOU REMEMBER HOW EVE WAS CREATED, YOU REMEMBER HOW MARIA SIRED JESUS. YOU KNOW THAT JACOB AMASSED WIVES. THE LIST IS ENDLESS.

LET US NOW EXAMINE TODAY'S SITUATION. BRITIAN HAS TRIED OVER THE YEARS. IT HAS A QUEEN, IT HAS HAD A FEMALE PRIME MINISTER IN MARGRET THATCHER AS PRIME MINISTER.

IN AFRICA, IT IS ONLY NOW THAT WE SEE WOMEN DEPUTY PRIME MINISTERS AND VICE PRESIDENTS. WE HAVE HAD WOMEN PRESIDENTS IN AFRICA. AS I SPEAK TANZANIA HAS A WOMAN PRESIDENT.

ZIMBABWE HAS MADE IT A POINT TO CONSTITUTIONALISE IT THROUGH PARLIAMENT. IT IS PRAISED FOR THAT.

WOMEN WORLDWIDE, ARE OPPRESSED THROUGH CULTURES AND RELIGIONS. IN AFRICA, GIRLS USED BE SENT TO SCHOOL TO BE ABLE TO WRITE, READ LETTERS AND ENCOURAGED TO GET MARRIED. THEY WERE NOT EDUCATED IN PREPARATION FOR ANY JOB OTHER THAN BEARING CHILDREN. EDUCATION IN GIRL CHILD WAS ASSOCIATED WITH PROSTITUTION.

IN ASIA, THEY HAVE CULTURES AND RELIGIONS WHICH OPPRESS WOMEN. IN AFGANSTAN, GIRLS ARE NOT EDUCATED BEYOND AND INTO SECONDARY EDUCATION.

SOMEWHERE IN THE ARAB WORLD, WOMEN ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DRIVE MOTOR VEHICLES, WALK WITH UNCOVERED FACES OR TO ATTEND SPORTING EVENTS !!!!!MEN CAN ALSO MARRY MORE THAN ONE WIVES.

I CAN NOT WRITE EVERYTHING ON THIS SUBJECT. IT IS LONG, WINDING AND INEXHAUSTIBLE.

WOMEN OF THE WORLD REFUSE TO BE ABUSED BY UNSCRUPULOUS MEN. YOU WILL ONE DAY ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS.

YOURS SINCERELY
