The guest speaker, Mrs Enife Atobiloye, Managing Consultant, Human Leadership Resources, in her remark said gender equality does not mean that men and women become the same; only that access to opportunities, resources and protections should be the same irrespective of their sex.

“Guaranteeing the rights of women and giving them opportunities to reach their full potential is critical not only for attaining gender equality but also for meeting a wide range of international development goals. Empowered women and girls contribute to the health and productivity of their families, communities, and countries, creating a ripple effect that benefits everyone”, she said.

“To make equality a reality we need to draw more into the conversation”, Ms Stella Duru, Non-Executive Director, Zedcrest Capital Limited said.

“Despite all the progress made, men still dominate positions of power. And, as a string of recent harassment scandals has shown, the behaviour of some men has had profound effects on women’s careers, their success and their lives. The good news, as we mark International Women’s Day, is that many men are acknowledging the importance of playing their part to make gender equality a reality”, she said.

The day has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this, the Socialist Party of America, the United Kingdom’s Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women’s equality. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
