Minister of Science and Technology Naledi Pandor on Tuesday addressed the Gender Summit Africa taking place in Cape Town, where she stressed the importance of women in science.

The more than three-thousand scientists have gathered at the Cape Town International Convention Centre for the summit under the theme “Poverty alleviation and economic empowerment through scientific research and innovation: Better knowledge from and for Africa".

Minister Pandor said “gender inequality and unfair discrimination have had devastating global consequences, as I watch this morning the disaster occurring in Nepal I wonder what the impact of this earthquake is on women.

All of us gathered here know that more women die in wars than men, more women live in poverty than men, more women are unemployed than men, more women have been denied education than men.” Pandor added.
