An equal percentage of women in parliament as women workers
The South African government legislated in favour of promoting women, with success in parliamentarian representation (42% of women in 2015), but with practical difficulties in the process of agrarian reform, which established, for single men and women, the chance of getting an equal amount of land individually, and that married women be able to request joint ownership with their husbands, both names being registered as beneficiaries. Despite the legal enactment, the measures progress slowly.
The prolonged drought has led to changes in the type of livestock kept by farmers, with an increased investment in goats which resist drought better than other species, are easier to handle for women, and improve the food poverty situation. Raising goats has been profitable enough to allow the woman in the photo to send her children to university.
