While women’s achievements will be celebrated on International Women’s Day on Monday, the Federation of Unions of South Africa says South Africa is lagging behind, saying that there should be calls for a radical change in gender equity policy direction rather than celebration. To illustrate their point, Fedusa quoted the Department of Employment and Labour’s latest Employment Equity Report which showed that the percentage of men in top management positions is nearly three times that of women, while the ratio of men in senior management positions is nearly double that of women. Women also made up two-thirds of more than two million jobs lost over the lockdown months.
