STATUS OF WOMEN UNEMPLOYMENT IN SA
  • Current statistics (April 2014- June 2014)
    indicates the pattern of unemployment rate of
    women remaining higher than that of men and the
    national average.
  • The trend of higher unemployment rate for women
    has been persistent for more than five years.
  • The number of unemployed people increased by 87
    000 between Q1 2014 and Q2 2014.
  • The largest increases in unemployment were
    observed among women (56 000) compared to 31 000
    increase for men.
  • These figures show that unemployment is a big
    challenge for women than it is for men and also
    show the vulnerability of women in the labour
    market.

    girls have equal opportunities to excel in the
    fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and
    Maths (STEM) by exposing them to opportunities,
    supported to continue higher education studies in
    STEM fields and facilitate learnership internship
    and job placement
  • Through the Gender Responsive Budgeting
    initiative (tool)the department will require
    departments and the private sector to ensure that
    they budget for the empowerment of women by
    indicating, how much is budgeted, of the budgeted
    amount how much was used, of the used amount how
    much reached women, of the women reached how many
    were empowered and in what way

16
CONCLUSION
  • The Select Committee can be of great assistance
    given that the Gender Responsive Budgeting
    imperative and principles are within COGTAs MTSF
    deliverables. This also allows the Committee to
    hold all departments to account on whether their
    budgets comply to gender budgeting principles
    and also to ascertain what departments plans and
    measures are to ensure that their budgets are
    gender responsive
  • The Select Committee can also assist by
    conducting an oversight on departments in
    relation to how their programmes are assisting
    women in achieving socio-economic empowerment
