Progress I suppose…

It’s sad that an agreement to raise the representation of women in Somalia’s parliament up to 30% is viewed as a ground breaking step in the right direction. I understand anything is an improvement on the current composition, where the only female cabinet minister for years has been the Minister for Women’s Affairs, but 30%? Really?

I’m going to read on the results of the Garowe Conference some more to get a better idea on what to expect from next weeks major conference in London.
