Women Urged To Make Voices Heard On Issues

The rector of the Ghana Law Institute, Mrs. Hilary Gbedemah, has urged women to come out and make their voices heard on issues that concerns them.

Mrs. Gbedemah said the law guarantee freedom of speech, which implied that both men and women were entitled to express their views on issues in connection to the nation.

Speaking at the 3rd annual Residential Women’s Conference held by the Ghana National Union of Polytechnic Students (GNUPS), she said the genetic nature of a woman does not mean she could not partake in certain activities as perceived by most men.

Women she noted were not objects to be trampled upon by men, but are of equal importance as men.

She urged women to take initiatives and always be on point, calling on the society to support women.

According to her, challenges like dual responsibilities, lack of confidence and networking had prevented women from achieving higher dreams.

She advised women to take opportunities that come their way and make good use of them to prove their capabilities in all fields.

The Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Madam Abla Dzifa Gomashie, said women should not allow voices to direct their path in life.

She noted that some women do not realise their role, calling on all women to ensure that they made an impact wherever they found themselves.

Madam Gomashie stated that it was wrong for Ghanaian women to imitate the culture of other countries, but should appreciate their culture and display it.

Women, she said, should not allow themselves to be swayed by public views.
