BY RONALD MAGWETA
WOMEN’S Academy for Leadership and Political Excellence (Walpe) in partnership with top Zimbabwean content producers, Bustop TV have launched a new drama series titled All-Female Parliament that seeks to promote women’s participation in politics.
Walpe director Sitabile Dewa told NewsDay Life &Style that the drama series encourages women and girls to aspire for top leadership positions despite their backgrounds.
“Women have been denied equal rights since time immemorial, gender balance and their participation in leadership positions have been an uphill task. Imagine, an all-female Parliament, a Parliament that will address the stereotypes that are associated with female leadership in Zimbabwe,” she said.
