Maria is a young professional holding a management position in one of the local banks. A young woman under 30, she claims she does not get the respect she deserves from her subordinates and colleagues and wonders if other women in high positions get similar treatment. Women not only require assertiveness, but respect from colleaguesGender stereotyping is not unique to Malawi. Former United States president Barrack Obama’s female staffers came up with an inventive way of ensuring their voices were heard in the oval office by employing what they called an ‘amplification’ strategy when in meetings dominated by their male colleagues. With this strategy, according to The Telegraph, when a woman made a significant point in a meeting, other women would repeat it, giving credit to the one who made the point. This forced the men in the room to recognise that particular woman’s contribution. Closer home, Naomi Msusa, a test administrator at the University of Cape Town (UCT)’s Centre for Higher Education talks of how she had to always prove her worth. “I often had to use my title to be taken seriously, or pepper conversations with grand sounding words to prove to my audience that I was one of them,” she says. However, sociologist Charles Chilimampunga asserts that whatever a man can do, a woman can also do, but notes that society seems to preserve some positions for males. “Men and women may have the same qualifications and sometimes the women are better at the job than some men, but society seems to have preserved certain positions in the workplace for men. “As such, when a woman holds that same position, she is not taken seriously or she does not get the same respect as a man would,” he says. He observes, however, that with more women now occupying positions of authority, people’s mindsets are beginning to change and appreciating women in high positions as the norm. “As long as society begins to accept that men and women are equal, people’s mindsets towards gender stereotyp..
People’s Land Organisation (PLO), a group that is fighting for land for locals in Thyolo and Mulanje from tea estate owners, is mobilising online signatures to petition President Peter Mutharika to free their leader Vincent Wandale and 22 members. In the petition, the group members argue that the release of the 23 will create a platform for meaningful dialogue to resolve the matter. Some of the people at the abortive land distribution in ThyoloWandale and 22 members of his group were arrested last week in connection with an incident on Thursday when hundreds of villagers invaded privately owned Conforzi Tea Estate in Thyolo and started sharing land among themselves. In an interview yesterday, petition coordinator Paliani Chinguwo confirmed the initiative to mobilise signatures, saying they are not targeting a specific number of signatories, “but rather that seven days from today [Wednesday] the signing of the petition will be closed and then be submitted or brought to the immediate attention of the Office of the President and Cabinet and the Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs.” The petitioners argue that, it is well documented that prior to the formal declaration of Nyasaland (Malawi) as a British Protectorate in 1891, the British imperial power had, under the Africa Orders in Council 1889 and 1892, appointed a commissioner for “British Central Africa who, in exercise of the Africa [Acquisition of Lands] Order 1898 and later the Nyasaland Order in Council 1907, purported to acquire and make grants of lands in the name of Her Majesty the Queen of Britain,” reads the petition in part. n
