Ghanaian most influential young women
Today marks International Women’s Day, a day meant not just to remember the strides and sufferings women have been through but an opportunity to celebrate women who have been leading amazing initiatives and organisations and have attained unprecedented achievements which in diverse ways are contributing to the development of their countries, organisations and people.Thus,Ghanaian most influential young women
Here in Ghana, the story is not different, the day is being celebrated with events to honour Ghanaian women who have been very significant in our national and international decision making, the ones who have defied the odds and are redefining who an African Woman must be; the game changers who have rejected gender inequality and making a strong point for women and the potentials they possess.
Though this day is coupled with an ink of jealousy from men, it doesn’t hinder them from joining the Global He for She movement in celebrating women and advocate for their inclusion in various national and international matters and programs. In 2013, I personally founded, Be A Girl, an initiative that awarded school girls who displayed excellence in both their academic and extracurricular activities.
