Beyond Inequalities 2008: Women in Southern Africa provides an analysis on the status of women and the various challenges, limitations and opportunities encountered in accelerating the pace to achieve gender equality in SADC, through identifying the roles of men and women and their relationship to economic, political and social resources to achieve the highest level of human development.
The analysis of the status of women in SADC is located within the frameworks of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BDPFA), resulting from the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing, China; the 1997 SADC Declaration on Gender and Development, and its 1998 Addendum on the Prevention and Eradication of Violence Against Women and Children; and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
SADC Gender Monitor 2006 provides an assessment of the progress, challenges and way forward for the SADC region towards meeting its obligations on achieving gender equality and equity. This edition updates those published in 1999 and 2001. An audit conducted in 2005 reveals gaps between women and men in decision-making, constitutional and legal rights, economic empowerment, gender violence, health, HIV and AIDS, and education; and constraints in institutional infrastructure for gender and development. The analysis is presented in two parts. Part I Current Situation covers “Where we are now”, while Part II Future Priorities and Way Forward shows “Where we are going”. The Head of SADC Gender Unit says in her Foreword that southern Africa has relatively good results in implementation of gender commitments but a lot still needs to be done to address the critical areas of concern set in the Beijing Platform For Action (1995), and the SADC Declaration on Gender and Development (1997) and Addendum (1998).
