How the TotalShutDown's 24 demand contribute to a feminist government

The advent of democracy in 1994 came with significant appointment of women in government. This was a result of powerful advocacy of women who were mobilised under the banner of the National Women’s Coalition during the transition period.

25 years later the governing party is the only party that has a 50/50 representation quota but has never elected a woman as its president and only has one woman sitting on its current national executive committee.

We speaking to The Total Shut down Movement which gives uinsight into the movement and how its memorandum of demands contributes to a feminist government.
