Share any moment that a woman empowerment inspired you
Oprah Winfrey inspires me day in day out. She went through numerous challenges to achieve her dreams. She is an inspiration to women who feel that they she cannot overcome racial/gender discrimination, gender violence, or poverty.
My observations about progress made regarding the empowerment of women globally
One milestone is the 2/3 gender rule in our constitution, which stipulates that the State shall take steps to ensure that not more than two-thirds of members of all elective and appointive positions are not of the same gender. The result is an increase in women representation in parliament.
What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
It is a day set aside to acknowledge women for their contribution for making the world a better place. Women play a vital role in the society first as mothers, mentors, entrepreneurs and even as leaders. It is a day to celebrate women for their hard work and achievements.
What is your message as we celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day?
My fellow women and young girls, surround yourselves with people who empower you and strive to remain positive in life. Love yourselves and celebrate your achievements. Be focused and keep your faith as you face life’s challenges. We all must empower girls and women by acknowledging their efforts and giving them more opportunities in society.
