A Clarion Call to All Women of Ethiopia

With elections only two months away the Ethiopian Media Women's Association(EMWA), urged every woman - be it an election candidate or a voter - to stay focused in the journey to realizing gender parity in this country.

In a press statement they said that Ethiopia need not only have more women representatives in the government but also men representatives who are gender sensitive and are keen on uplifting the status and freedom of the women in this country. More on allAfrica.com
