The Speaker who is also the Patron of the Association noted that Parliament is in the process of establishing a beauty parlour.
She says that women have been spending a lot of time beautifying themselves which has greatly hindered the performance of their duties.
In 6th and 7th parliament, women were not allowed to travel abroad because officials were arguing that their husbands will not allow them.
When Kadaga became the deputy Speaker of Parliament, she fought all these injustices.
Parliament consists of over 200 workers of which 3/4 are women.
Kadaga has instructed the Clerk to Parliament to make it a point that on every job advertised, women should apply.
She was shocked to see that in Uganda there is government woman drivers yet in other African countries like Botswana, 90% of government drivers are women because they are considered more conscious and honest than their male counterparts.
This year’s main celebrations are already underway in Kumi district under the theme “in partnership with men and boys for empowerment of women and girls in Uganda.
