Gender Equality, the gate way to development.
Many men have looked at the struggle for gender equality to mean women transforming to become men. This is really not true, as it looks into taking off gender related challenges or obstacles which prevent women from reaching or attaining their utmost potentials.

This far, i have gone for more skills on how to make my posters good and reader friendly. I have got many persons sharing the posts, many positive feedback coming in, and i am really excited about it. 

How many people have you impacted since your last update?

Hello Nangkeng,
I love that you challenge the messages that working for freedom and equality for women means we want to become men. It is a very old tactic to make women back off from speaking out and/or associating with women speaking out. It keeps men from admitting the unfairness, because to admit the unfairness means having to give up power, and share. Good luck as you continue with this important work. Great photo!

Hello Ndungla,
It is such a brilliant idea to use pictures and posters to campaign for gender fairness. Pictures invite people to engage with them and for those who are resistant, are not as threatening as words. And a picture remains in peoples minds for longer too.
Good on you and congratulations on your growing impact.

Hello, Ndungla,

Canva is really a good start to learn graphic designs. I'm glad you have a lot of followers on your FB page already. Just keep going ang posting, your followers will eventually grow. Keep it up, dear!

Unfortunately, I took a break from FB so I couldn't see your activities there.

Thanks for sharing!
