The talk show focused on the results that have been achieved since the implementation of the gender equality policy, what has been done, what has not been done and what can be done to correct existing mistakes.

The invitees pointed out that empowering women is important, but they also argued women to not cross the line until they abuse men.

The invitees also pointed out that women's development activities have not been implemented at the grassroots level and there is a need for awareness-raising campaigns to help people, including women themselves, change their attitudes.

About   the issue of teenage pregnancies, the invitees  suggested that following up on the issue would go hand in hand with setting up a fund to take care of the children as often imprisoning the perpetrators is of no use in terms of the fact that they are left with the problem of caring for the children.

Invitees also criticized Ministry of Gender and Family Promotion (MIGE PROF for seeming to operate only at the national level.

Rwanda is now a global leader in women participation in legislative decision-making positions with 61.3% female members of Parliament and also ranked 9th globally in closing gender gaps according to the Global Gender Gap Report, 2020. In addition, 52% of the Cabinet members are women, among the Judges and clerks, women stand at 49.7% while in the local government leadership, women occupy 45.2 % as Members of District Councils.
