Part of the focus on the two Women’s Days in Angola is on the advancement of women to be able to vote and to hold office along with men and to gain more opportunities for jobs, education, and other benefits.

But the other half of the focus is on the ground still left to travel: the inequalities and injustices that still exist. Sexual exploitation, discrimination, and other problems still persist in spite of some government actions and media and social media campaigns to the contrary.
