According to G.D. Anderson, ‘Feminism is not about making women strong. Women are already strong. It is about changing the way the world perceives that strength’. Imagine a world where gender inequality is a thing of the past.
A world free of bias and stereotypes, where being a female does not mean working twice as much. Marked annually, International Women’s Day is a day set aside to celebrate women’s achievements and raise awareness about women’s equality.
It is with this in mind that, the National Women’s Summit comes off every March 8, for 3 consecutive years in celebration of International Women’s Day. In its 4th edition, this year’s event comes off at the Grand Arena, Accra International Conference Centre from 9 am.
The Summit will be held under the joint themes: ‘#Break the bias….and you deserve a life of goodness’. The Global theme of ‘#Break the bias’ is a clarion call to society at large to break biases and stop gender stereotyping women.
The sub-theme ‘You deserve a life of goodness’ is a call for women to aspire for a life of goodness in their daily pursuits, by paying attention to their wellbeing because they need to be well in body, mind and spirit to be able to fully take a seat at the table.
Interesting panel discussions on ‘#Break the bias’ will be held by an eclectic mix of females across generations and professions, who will discuss what Bias is, share their personal experiences of Bias, how they rose above that to achieve their personal dreams and successes and most importantly, how we can all together as a society and as individuals make a conscious effort to break the biases against females.
The second session will be a wellness session titled ‘You deserve a life of goodness’ presented by Frytol and other Wellness Professionals which will feature discussions on healthy eating, physical and mental health and how all these lead to living a life of goodness.
The Fourth National Women’s Summit will be aired live on Joy FM from 10 am – 12 noon, and on Facebook @ FRYTOLGHANA, Youtube @ CHARTERHOUSE LIVE
And is sponsored by Frytol, supported by SHE LEADS and produced by Charterhouse in collaboration with Joy FM.
