Nana Abena Boaduwaa II, Queen Mother of Apinto Divisional Council in the Prestea Huni-Valley Municipality of the Western Region, has encouraged women to be bold enough to approach and propose to a man they have fallen in love with.
She advised that any woman who has fallen in love with a man should find a proper way of approaching the man or should do that by inviting the person for lunch or dinner while expressing her feelings to the man and making her intentions known.
Nana Boaduwaa II made the advice at an event to mark this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD) at Abekoase Tebe. The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day was “#BreakTheBias: Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”.
The Vice President for Sustainable Development of Gold Fields West Africa, Dr Celestina Allotey, advised the women to develop the mentality of being capable free to do all things they desired irrespective of the cultural barriers.
She contended that women were not meant to be in the kitchen as often believed but were also made to play an active role in developing society.
The event was organised by Gold Fields Ghana, Tarkwa Mine to commemorate the social, political and economic achievements of women.
This year’s campaign calls on people to work towards a world that is equitable, inclusive, and free from bias and discrimination so the playing field is levelled for women moving forward.
Most women during this day come together to celebrate one another and rally for equal treatment and representation.
