A woman should not be celebrated only on one day. Likewise, women should not wait for Father’s Day, to celebrate men. Do it now. In any case, today the world marks Women’s International Day, March 8th. We here too honor the place of a woman in family, business, government and society.
We take this opportunity to call on an exponential growth in your appreciation in all matters that affect the world that we live in. Your role as a wife, a girlfriend, a working woman, an inspiration for political change and an instrument to better the future. We do hope that more of you will have the confidence to further your talents in business and political engagement. You can, even though they still say it is a man’s world.
“Women beget women and men alike. We all come from women”.Alfred Yambo
Through your hard work, you can build yourself and make society better for those who look up to you, the girls. This means that you must watch your ways and shun the ill behaviours that lead you to rush after quick money. These include being a busy body and offering sexual favors for jobs. Today, reflect on your own ability to make a big change on society through your small efforts to make money and grow yourself as a person. Only from that attitude can you be the best woman.
In as much as you still are not well represented worldwide, we are ready to work with you, support you and see to it that you get more recognition. Gender mainstreaming remains a challenge of modern day society and through your help, we can achieve it. How can you help? By coming out of your shell and doing business, working hard, getting these seats, being a woman of substance. All in all, we love you and appreciate your presence.
Happy International Women’s Day.
