Are you going to be doing anything to recognise international women’s day/ why do you think it is important to recognise international women’s day?
I will be doing nothing as I have to look after my family, but it is important for us to recognise the day because we are the mothers for everyone.
What are some of the main issues you think Zambian women face?
Gender based violence is the biggest issue women in Zambia face.
What more would you like to see TTF do to support women in the community?
By helping them to think about how to raise for money for business and taking them for training on HIV and how to support their families.
What are some of the main problems you see the fellow mothers at TTF and in the community facing?
Stigma around HIV - Women should come out and talk about the things they are facing and not just keep what they are going through to themselves. We have a support group but people are still scared of stigma. By sharing it helps women to understand they aren’t alone and to give us a stronger voice.
If you could change one thing in Zambia to help support women’s equality, what would it be and why?
Have a woman as president!
