EVALSDGs Insight #10 concerns a longstanding issue: gender inequality and the degree to which the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can assure equality and equity among peoples. Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) of SDGs implementation in 66 countries indicate that countries must act vigorously to achieve gender equity across all SDGs. This Insight proposes some solutions for strengthening gender responsiveness in evaluations of the SDGs.
Thank You Rita, I will update my profile with eval pictures and my personal profile over the weekend, only. Thanks for initiating and making us sharing some great technical and organizational gender-related work around the globe! Susanne
I should have responded to your welcoming note ages ago. I was too tight to squeeze that minute. Anyway, today I thought I needed to respond to your kind and warm welcome. I am definitely very comforted with joining this platform of committed gender scholars and stakeholders. I shall create space to be more active as we move ahead.
I have shared information to this site with my colleagues at Tanzania Gender Networking Program - TGNP. I have urged them to look it up. So lets hope more colleagues from this side of the world will knock on your doors for sharing and learning together.
Thank you so much for your very warm welcome. I am pleased to have joined. I am beginning to fill out my profile, and I look forward to participating in this important on-line community. Thank you ! Best wishes Penny
Am happy you recognised my Birthday. I love that. Thank you very much.
However, the events following our elections in Uganda seems to have strange twists and turns. First the Social media applications and internet was turned off then, then came strange requests from the only female candidate in the just concluded presidential campaign requesting the PRESIDENT TO GIVE HER A JOB EVEN BEFORE THE OLD MAN IS SWORN IN FOR THE THE FOURHT DECADE IN POWER.
Am personally disappointed given that:
1. maureen Kalya was the only female to face the male dominated presidential campaign for the highest office in Uganda.
2. She was my candidate and very atticulate with social transformation programmes and policy frameworks at least according to her speech in the campaigns
3. Uganda being highly partiachal society where most people including Women dont yet believe that a lady can not lead this turbulent land locked country, its such a huge blow for us the human rights activists. We are left wondering whetehr it will be possible to support the next female candidate in the next presidential camaign in 2021!
The week has not been fair to our spirited campaign this time round.
I can surely only smile at the attempt to break the age old stereo type that Only men can lead Uganda or at least in the modern era.
