The Policy aims to promote gender equality and equity by increasing the participation of women in leadership positions and access to resources. This will be achieved by developing gender sensitivity amongst all councils, councillors and staff. The Policy identifies specific areas for action and ensures that decision making, development,

The Policy will assist ZILGA and all councils to reorient some traditions and the stereotyping of women
which contrive to reinforce inequality, exclusion, gender neutral policies which fail to address practical gender needs.

People like Bishop Paul Verryn of the Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg should be given all the assistance they deserve and a little media attention wouldn’t hurt either. The Bishop believes his church’s mission is one of reaching out and helping those who would help themselves…
