Sending a Boy to do a Man's Job

Posted March 6, 2021 from Nigeria

In celebration/commemoration of the International Women's Day 2021, Sheroes Rising Initiative for Development is hosting its first webinar series which challenges 'sending a boy to do a Man's Job.

This is in line with the theme of the IWD 2021 celebrations and activities which is to challenge. 

At sheroes Rising Initiative for Development, we are challenging the rationale, belief, and practice of underaged and Girl child marriage in in favor of education in our society. 

I am inviting all world pulse sisters to join us and participate in this discussion if they have the time (considering the beehive of activities on that day) on Monday 8th March 2021 via zoom. It promises to be an interesting discussion as it has on the panel of speakers, experts in psyhciatry and mental health, Girl child Education, Women EMpowerment and social impact. 

We require prior registration before the event (this is to enable us track the participation and the number of participants we will be having) but tdue to the lateness of this invitation, we will make arrangements for every world pulse member that wish to participate even during the event. 

Keep rising, keep shining and keep leading World Pulse sisters.

We love you.

In love and sisterhood...

Dear Hawwah,
What great news that your focus the IWD is to challenge the practice of underage marriage of girls, and all of the limitations this imposes. I am sure that those of us unable to attend as we raise our voices together, will want as much news as you can send after the event. Hopefully it will be recorded to document this message, and so that we can collectively keep it heard.

Dear Tamarack,
Yes, indeed it was an interesting conversation.
I shall analyse it and produce it into a multimedia feature.
I want all my sisters to hear about this conversation.
Very interesting I promise.
How are you, dear Tam? How were the IWD activities for you?
I trust it was all very interesting. Talk soon,

Lots of love,
Hawwah.

Hello Hawwah,
The title for your webinar is very intriguing. I see it questioning the norm in our culture where as soon as the teenage rites of passage are performed on our boys, they are deemed men and let loose without much mentorship and accountability. It is encouraging to IWD push for a shift in the culture in the expectations we have of our girls, and how these fail them miserably. It is altogether very inspiring venture, and hopefully you can record it and share a summary of the gems shared during the even in a World Pulse story for those of us who cannot make it.
Well done, and all the best!

Dear Nini,
Yes, it is intriguing, and it was deliberately chosen.
It is such a sad thing that these issues are still very much with us in this age and time. We are not supposed to be dealing with child/underaged marriage at all by this time.
We must continue to raise our voices and thoughts about all these dogmas and cultural shackles that hold us back.
Even if the change does not happen in our time, we have contributed to making it happen.
I would like to have more discussions with you about this passage of rights.
Expect my DM soon. Thank you so much for this comment.
Lots of love,
Hawwah.
