Speaker Jacob Oulanyah has asked representatives of the UN Women to align their agenda with the struggle to transform and uplift rural women.
Oulanyah who was meeting with UN Women Uganda Representatives led by Ms Elizabeth Mushabe, who is also the Deputy Country Representative, called for a shift from speaking at high tables, conferences to a deliberate push to make the agenda impactful to all women including those in rural areas.
He said there is a need to stop measuring things on the basis of how much money has been allocated, but rather on output accountability, looking at the value and impact made.
Meanwhile, Mushabe hailed Parliament’s record in gender empowerment, and made a case for stalled gender Bills from the 10th Parliament, and sought for their revival.
The speaker in response said there is a process to activate the bills.
