Every day is a good day to be a woman, but International Women’s Day serves as a solid reminder that women are strong and resilient.
Every day, we hear things like:
Keep quiet when men are talking, you’re a woman
Can’t you see she is a woman? That’s why she got the job
She is pregnant again? She no dey tire?
Smh… Na woman dey drive self
I thought she is married? Why is she dressed like that?
The kitchen is her responsibility, she is a woman
Look how short her gown is. Who is she trying to impress?
Why she dey waka up and down? She go soon find wetin she dey look for
You shouldn’t earn more than your husband
You shouldn’t be too ambitious, you’re a woman
How can you not know how to cook?
You’re gonna get hurt. You’re a lady
You should be more girly, you’re a woman.
The bias goes on and on…
Imagine a gender-equal world.
A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination
One where difference is valued and celebrated
A world that is diverse and equitable.
Cheers to the amazing women who have helped pave the way to where we are today and the incredible women who continue to break the bias. We thank you for your willingness to fight for what matters. For inspiring everyone around you to be their most authentic self.
