Embracing your story as A woman
To disrupt unjust systems against women, break barriers, women violence and vulnerability, the world needs to think outside the box to build a more inclusive society.
Often times, I hear people say women are more than men in the society. I won’t argue with that. But, here is my analysis. Let’s say on percentage 60:40%, or 65:35% or so….. Now, let us assume females form 60% of the World’s population and assuming women ain’t to take vital role in our society. This means, 100% of the world’s share (economy, potentials, livelihood etc) will be handled by 40% of men’s resources. What an imbalance!!!!!!!!!! We can all attest to the problem our society will be facing with only 40% of men’s resources handling a 100% share of our country's problems and challenges. Based on this, we should all agree that females have a role to play in our society to create a balance growing economy.
Women form an integral part in the growth of our Community as well as the achievements of the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) Ladies, we have a vital Role to play in our society in Politics, Economic, Civil society, Family, Business/Entrepreneurship, Agriculture etc Females are supposed to be participatory as much as men in our society for a growing and balanced Economy. Our role in the Community is twice as bigger as that of men.
Growing up as an African girl child, the image the society builds on her mind is a wedding dress. As she grows up, she builds fairy tales of her prince charming. No matter her education or vocation, success and true happiness is only attained in a wedding dress. Her ultimate Value. Not that marriage is bad, of course not but.... i ask myself this questions….. What if you don't get married or you delay in marrying? What if you marry and divorce, abandoned or your partner dies, what becomes of you???
