Being a woman makes a lot of things come naturally. Like being compassionate to people’s needs and aspirations. It also makes it easier to ensure peace reigns in a constituency, just like at home.
Where women are healthy and educated, not only their families, but entire nations flourish as we have seen with the “Asian Tigers”. Conversely, where women are not empowered the demographic dividend will not be realised.
There is need for more women to be empowered with education, health and economic sustainable ventures.
