National gender policy will help both boys and girls
As a developing country, having a national gender policy is of prime importance.
It is not merely protection for women and/or a submission to feminism, but affects all stakeholders in our society.
Implementation and enforcement of such means more boys will be encouraged to complete formal secondary and tertiary education.
Educational material will be more gender-sensitive and gender-inclusive, and both men and women will share equal stake in the decision-making process.
Girls will not be excluded from pursuing vocational education, and both men and women will be privy to the same opportunities and attain the same results.
Boys will not be socialised to resent and demean girls who may surpass them academically, and women will be able to enter the workplace knowing they are protected from economic and other forms of discrimination.
