APRM lauds Namibia's Parliament's gender representation


Unequal access to productive resources, harmful socio-cultural practices, gender-based violence, and low participation of women in decision-making, especially on the economic front, are some of the challenging factors contributing to gender inequality.

These were identified in the country review report by the African Peer Review Mechanism, released on Thursday.

The report acknowledges Namibia's efforts to strengthen its focus on generating sex-disaggregated statistics.

This is to address the existing lack of data on gender equality and rights.
