NGO Launches 50/50 Campaign in Malawi

Malawi’s NGO Gender Coordination Network implements plans for the country’s ‘50/50 campaign’

Fresh from a dramatic increase in the number of women representatives elected into national government in 2009, the NGO Gender Coordination Network is already implementing plans for the Malawi's ‘50/50 campaign’ to ensure that more women sit in local government seats after the November elections.

Chairperson of the NGO Gender Coordination Network implementing Malawi, Emma Kaliya, was quoted as saying that various strategies are being used to change perceptions about women's capacity for political leadership in the national ‘50/50 campaign - 2009 and beyond’.

Kaliya, who was recently honoured with a Southern African Trust ‘Drivers of Change’ Award for her role in the campaign, points out that the organisation assisted the women with campaign materials and promotional items and gave them some funds for transportation purposes during the campaign.
