An aspiring Parliamentary Candidate for Bortianor-Ngleshie-Amanfro constituency on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party, Hon. Gifty Mensah has urged women never to underrate themselves because women are strong and special.
Speaking at the maiden edition of the Women Empowerment Summit (WES), organized by Friends of Women in Global Economy, held at ‘Kasoa second’, the Hon. Gifty Mensah said most women think they have nothing in them and for that matter, they always underrate themselves thinking nothing good can come out of them.
According to her, the perception is false and must be deleted from their minds because just as the saying goes, “behind any successful man there is a woman”, men can not do anything without women.
Siting an example of how men can not do without women, she said if a women leaves home, leaving a child with the man, the man will either let the child stay with his mother, sister or girlfriend who are all women.
This means women are strong and special in the life of men.
She added that men in one way or the other listen to a woman before they do something.
“Men always seek advice from either their wives, mothers, sisters or girlfriends before they do anything. Therefore never think you are a weak vessel” she added.
She concluded that, the time has come for women to support their fellow women when they want to via a position because a woman will always understand the situation of her fellow women than how a man will understand the situation.
The maiden edition of the Women Empowerment Summit (WES), organized by Friends of Women in Global Economy, held at ‘Kasoa second’ under Madam Esther Oppong Agyei as the chairperson was graced by Ambassador Dr. Shora from Nigeria, former Central regional women organizer of NPP, Nana Ama Abrafi, and many dignitries.
