As Music Association of Malawi(MAM) executive committee is gearing for polls in July, a battle for position has started with the women’s desk launching 50-50 campaign to ensure more women in the committee.
MAM will elect new office bearers during its Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for July, and time is running out for the women desk.
Currently there no women in the committee, a development Mituka said affects women’s participation in the association.
“It is sad that we don’t have any women in the executive committee, it was better during the last tenure because we had a female . As women’s desk, we want to ensure we coax women to participate in the elections and make sure there are women”, she said.
She further explained that it will be difficult to achieve the 50-50 representation, but said the campaign is an on-going programme whose objective is to see more women are playing crucial roles in the promotion of music.
