Lilongwe, February 26: President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has expressed zeal to ensure that women and men are equal and have the right to equal opportunities in all the sectors of national development.
He said this on Thursday at Parliament Building in Lilongwe, where he launched the HeForShe Campaign which calls for solidarity on gender equality and women empowerment.
The President said gender equality and women empowerment is not only women’s problem but rather a human rights issue which calls for the full support and participation of men and boys.
