On International Women’s Day this year, the world is focusing on innovative ways in that can propel gender equality and the empowerment of women.
This year’s celebration is under the global theme “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change.”
In a press release to commemorate the day, the United Nations in Ghana said the issues of women are often compromised by the lack of needed opportunities.
“Women’s education and economic empowerment are too often compromised by lack of adequate and sustained opportunities, support, and investments. Child marriage and teenage pregnancy remain a critical barrier to girls’ continued education, skills development, and full transition into employment. Ghanaian women constitute 70 % of the informal sector workforce and many are low-income earners with limited social security protection.”
