I am Generation Equality: Sinikiwe Kademaunga, fights for the rights of people with disabilities
Billions of people across the world stand on the right side of history every day. They speak up, take a stand, mobilize, and take big and small actions to advance women’s rights. This is Generation Equality.
Date: Thursday, August 12, 2021
Three actions we can all take to be part of Generation Equality are:
- Speak up for your rights.
- Get involved in the empowerment processes. Let us all be intentional about bringing the generational change we want to see in our communities.
- Be inclusive. We should include everyone- women, youths, and persons with disabilities- in leadership and programs.
I am Generation Equality because…
I am a disability activist and a member of the African Women Leaders Network, Zimbabwe Chapter. I fight for the rights of people with disabilities, especially women, because personally I am a woman with a disability. As an advocate for gender equality in Zimbabwe, I believe that as women, this is our time to rise, this is our time to create the generation that we’ve always wished for, and this is our time to help other young generations so that we keep this spirit of women empowerment.
“We need more women in the decision-making processes so that they can represent other women.”
