International Women's Day: Let's all get involved in the fight for gender equality - STRANEK
Policy think tank, Strategic Thinkers Network-Africa (STRANEK-Africa) has sent warm wishes to Ghanaian women as the world today marks International Women's Day.
STRANEK in a release said Ghana has come a long way in terms of gender equality but more needs to be done.
They, however, bemoaned the state at which our parliament has fewer number of women and backed calls to increase the 275 seats to 300. They also supported the idea of reserving 25 seats solely for women.
They also urged all Ghanaians to get involved in the fight to ensure gender equality in an equal world.
Originally celebrated as International Working Women’s Day, it metamorphosed to commemorate women throughout history and across nations and to create a platform to unravel and discuss the challenges that women are faced with each day of their lives especially in a patriarchal society where men dominate economic, political, religious and social affairs.
