Gender in the 2014 South African National Elections

It may have been just a three percentage point drop in women’s representation in parliament in the May 2014 South African elections. But that drop sent tremors across a region hoping to at least show some progress on this front by 2015, the deadline year for the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development, signed here in 2008.

The SADC Gender Protocol and the Post 2015 Agenda

This pamphlet lays out why the SADC Gender Protocol must move with the times and think global and act local. The Protocol on Gender and Development was adopted in 2008.
