Dear Woman: You have value

Hawwah
Posted March 8, 2020 from Nigeria

Even though the UN only adopted 8th March as International Women's Day in 1977, but the history of 8th March began way back in 1909.

And the history of women's struggle for equality goes back even further,

This is a clear indication that the battle for equality for women is an age long struggle which is still not yet realised.

And it is now more than ever that I realise that, even though the battle is long and hard, it is achievable.

On this day, 8th March 2020, I say to women all over the world,

YOU MATTER.

YOU HAVE VALUE.

YOU ARE ENOUGH.

Dear JaneKalu,
You are welcome.
So long as the society constitute to undermine our worthy and value,
We must continue to remind ourselves of it.
Hope you are doing well.
