Article 10 of the Constitution of The Republic of Namibia guarantees equality before the law and the right to non-discrimination on the basis of sex.[1] The constitution is considered one of the few to use gender-neutral language throughout.[2] Namibia ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1992 and the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women in 2000. It ratified the Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa in 2004[3]and recently signed and ratified the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development. The government has also implemented several new policy measures, including an update of the National Gender Policy and the development of Vision 2030 and the third National Development Plan.[4]
