WLC SONA

Press Release

THE STATE OF THE NATION, GOVERNMENT PRIORITIES AND WOMEN IN SOUTH AFRICA
Women’s rights organisation Women’s Legal Centre (WLC) responds to President Jacob Zuma’s state of the nation address and the current SONA debates. The Presidents proposed radical social economic transformation will exclude millions of vulnerable women due lack of access.

The WLC acknowledges President Jacob Zuma’s state of the national address on Thursday 09 February, and its focus on transforming the economy so that all South Africans will benefit, in particular the poor, and as noted by the President the majority being black women.
