The government has made significant strides towards reaching its target of having 30 percent of its senior posts filled by women.

The mark was set two years ago. "We have breached the psychological 20 percent mark," Public Service and Administration Minister Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi said on Tuesday.

"As of March 2004, 24,5 percent of all management posts in the public service were occupied by women," she told parliamentarians and businesswomen at a lunch in Pretoria hosted by first lady Zanele Mbeki.
