PWC stands up for Girls’ Education

‘Female Members of Parliament today attended Parliament while wearing school uniforms to disseminate messages about girl child education.

The Speaker of the National Assembly, Right Honourable Catherine Gotani Hara, along with all female Members of Parliament and female members of cabinet wore uniforms after standing orders were waived.

Some female cabinet ministers who entered the house without wearing uniforms were ordered to go out and wear their uniforms.

The gesture followed a request by Minister of Gender, Children and Community Welfare for the Parliamentary Women’s Caucus to put on primary school uniforms and use the occasion to disseminate messages about girl child education and commemorate the International Day of the African Child.’
