The international women’s day which falls on the 8th of March every year was celebrated and commemorated amidst pomp this year in a grand style by a coalition of young and youthful women entrepreneurs, at the office auditorium of ISPACE; a tech company that has the interest of honing and chatting positive developmental agenda for women.
The programme started by showing a brief documentary that showcased the achievements of highly influential women and history makers like the female abolitionist Harriet Tubman and Yaa Asantewaa. Young and vibrant women filled and jam-packed the auditorium to its capacity with young women voguely dressed to heighten their feminine gorgeousness that made them to smash and command the day that belong to them.
Doris Ahiati, who is a career woman on the field of financial engineering and also doubled as poultry farm owner says, women are awesomely powerful but do not do self-introspection to realize how great their power is. Doris who continued her narrative opined; she ventured into poultry because as a mother and a wife, she does not trust the wholesomeness of the chicken she buys from cold stores and as a result, has to devise an alternative mean of putting chaste and good meat on her dinner table. Madam Doris concluded her panel discussion by the quote, “who rocks the cradle rules the world” and says women have always taken the commanding heights of rocking the cradle of heroes and heroines millennia ago.
Dora, one of the all-female panelist who also owns an online soup kitchen reiterated, society and parents must work together to keep their girl child longer in school and thereby avoiding early marriage and teenage pregnancy. Miss Dora also waxed on with her take on the national women’s day by also quoting a Mexican proverb that says “the home is the first learning institution and women are the teachers of the home institution”. She spoke to women of not shrinking their roles in the home and society at large just to kowtow to the whims of their husbands.
At the end of the programme, a mouthwatering meal was served with vintage wines to wash it down, amidst socialization that created a kind of charged atmosphere with goddesses come to life with towering electric feminine presence.
The international women’s day is celebrated on the 8th of March every year as a focal point for the right and the assertion of women and negative cultures that militate against the welfare and the growth of womanhood.
