The Executive Director of Jashabel Touch-a-heart Foundation, (JTAHF) Favour Benson says WOMEN MUST AND SHOULD BREAK all Gender inequality.
Benson, who is a Human Rights Activist, Motivational Speaker, Film Producer, Publisher and Philanthropist, said this in line with the March 8 International Women’s Day being celebrated all over the world, a celebration of women and the theme for the year 2022 is #BreakTheBIAS.
She said it is heart breaking when men condescend so low to intimidate women which they carry out in several ways like Blackmail, Putting Women Down, Accusing her Unjustly, Sexual Harassment and Molestation etc.
Men also feel intimidated seeing a woman doing well or topping the charts in the same field as them, they undergo the same tasks, examinations, a woman has to pass through the same things with men, but they still bring in the gender issue when they both pass through the same process.
The woman is made to get married, drop her surname, get pregnant and give birth, nurse the child(ren), take care of the home front which includes the husband too, So, why bring in GENDER in her role after the facts stated above? This must STOP and I’m glad for this year’s theme that says it all #breakthebias.
If we want sustainable development in every area of our world, women must be given a fair playing ground to exhibit her talents rather than been pushed aside.
Benson said in celebration of the 2022 International women’s Day, Jashabel Touch-a-heart Foundation (Jtahfoundation) will have a round table talk on the theme “BREAKING BIAS AGAINST WOMEN” on March 8.
