Engaging with SA Deputy Chair: National Council of Provinces, Sylvia Lucas

 

This week on Womanity-Women in Unity, Dr. Amaleya Goneos-Malka talks to the Deputy Chairperson of the  National Council of Provinces (NCOP)’s Sylvia Lucas from the ruling African National Congress.

Lucas is also the former Premier of the Northern Cape Province.

She speaks of the differences between the NCOP and  the National Assembly, emphasising the NCOP’s mandate to ensure provincial interests are taken into account.

The show discusses the nationwide review of the Women’s Charter, aspects of equality, fighting violence against women and girls and the state of implementation of articles in the Women’s Charter.

Discussions further touch on women in political leadership and the challenges therein, and also considers ways to help encourage women to pursue leadership roles, from support, to mentorship and recognition.

Paraphrasing her grandmother, the Deputy Chair reminds us that, “Flowers can grow in the ghetto”.
