The Commission of Gender Equality (CGE) welcomes President Jacob Zuma’s State of Nation Commitments and addressing the challenges of unemployment, poverty and inequality through higher growth and job creation. As noted by the president, 2012marks the 16 anniversary of the constitution, which is meant to guide our government’s policies and actions. We wish to question to what extent women has realised the social, economic and political rights outlined in the constitution, and attained equality of opportunity and non-discrimination. Noting that women are the worst affected by unemployment, poverty and inequality, it is critical to bring a gender lens to question whether the persistent challenges experienced by are in fact guiding and reflected in the policy commitments and intended actions outlined.
