Now is time for gender equality — United Nations chief

MANICALAND yesterday joined the rest of the world in celebrating the International Women's Day with a thrust to inspire women and strive for gender parity across the province. The International Interior Design Association (IIDA)'s 2016 survey reported that 69 percent of design practitioners are women (out of 87,000), but only 25 percent of those women are firm principals.

The Charge d'Affairs at the Liberian Embassy and Permanent Delegate to UNESCO, Mrs. Geraldine Bass-Golokeh praised the artistic brilliance and professionalism of the Liberian artists and commended them for representing Africa at this year's International Women's Day Art Exhibition.

In her message for the Day, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women explained that this year's theme captured the life of the women activists whose passion and commitment had brought change over generations and won women's rights.

Rural women, urban women, women in paid employment and those in the unpaid care economy - all women contribute in one way or another to nation building.

Other cultural factors identified in the report include never asking employees to change their appearance to comply with company culture, providing training to keep employees' skills relevant, letting workers work from home on a day they have a personal commitment and making employees feel comfortable reporting incidents of sexual discrimination and sexual harassment. And that is what I want. Amidst a deepening capitalist crisis, escalating imperialist aggression, and the rise of the fascist right, women are leading the struggle for an equitable, sustainable, socialist future for the human race.
