Equal rights, equal opportunities
I believe that women know their rights, especially widows. As a man, you have to step out and not remain silent. If we want to achieve our goals of development, we must celebrate our women leaders.
The Kakamega women’s group convened to help us understand the sustainable development goals. Gender equality cuts across all of our issue areas and impacts all aspects of our work. Now we go to the community and create a mass movement for progress.
Men, let’s give women the chance to thrive. We’re now pushing for women in the health and education boards in our communities. In 2013, there were four women in the county assembly, but now we had seven of our own female champions nominated in the 2017 election. Women must come out of poverty completely – our goal is that by 2019, every woman has money in her pocket.
