As the world mark’s International Day of the Girl today 11th October 2017, Hon. Joyce Zempare an aspiring candidate for the National Women’s Organizer position on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called on women especially those in leadership and influential positions to exhibit exemplary lives that would inspire the Youth in the society especially, the Girl Child.
As women and mothers in leadership positions be it corporate, religious or political, we owe it as a collective and a solemn responsibility to inspire and motivate our Youth especially the Girl Child in society. The base of every solid society is the family which the woman or mother plays a very critical and influential role.
As a mother and a politician myself, I personally see motivation and positive influence through deeds as very important traits that inspire the Youth to reach their apogees. I have always advocated for women empowerment in political and corporate leadership as a very essential tool that would bridge the leadership gap between women and their male counterparts. Indeed, instilling these skill and competence at the childhood is the surest way to get the Girl Child groomed early enough to identify her leadership potentials. Hence, the need to prepare our young females early enough to eliminate obstacles such as timidity and tagging of certain professions as “men’s job”.
Ahead of activities set up for Commemoration of the ‘2017 International Day of the Girl’ on the theme ‘Girls Taking Up Leadership Roles’,As part of activities to mark the day, Hon. Otiko Afisah Djaba, today, met and interacted with the school girls some of whom assumed and micmic influential female personalities such as, the First Lady of Ghana, Minister of Gender, Children & Social Protection, Accra Regional Minister, Attorney General, Honourable Member of Parliament, Doctor, Teacher and many other influential positions as the day will be marked at all regional and districts levels across the country.
