Let Girls Lead


Girlhood and womanhood directly impact one another; empowered girls grow up to be empowered women. Young girls and women need to harness the synergies between gender equality, women’s rights and sustainable development. When women have a greater voice and participatory role in public administration, public resources are far more likely to be allocated towards investments in human development including girls’ education, child health, nutrition, and access to employment. Empowered girls grow up to be empowered women. Let girls be girls, LET GIRLS LEAD -- or our quest to empower all women and girls, ensure no talent or voice is left behind, and achieve full gender equality by 2030 will remain a dream, not reality.

    Empowerment should start with the girl child and her family too. If the family is sensitized to women issues and encouraged to educate their girls, then the girls will always have a role model to look upto from within their family and also will have all the support she needs to grow up and achieve her dreams.

    I like what i see nowadays in our mixed primary schools unlike in the past when girls could not be given a chance to be head of their classes as prefects and monitors or even head girls nowadays responsibilities are shared among girls and boys, if this continues without discriminating the boy child ensuring power at any level is shared girls will grow to respect boys and boys will get to embrace the fact that girls are capable this will go along way towards promoting women empowerment. Empowerment activities to girls moving forward.

    This is so true. We have to keep pushing for free Education for a Girl Child.

    There is a quote that says "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." - Frederick Douglass. Let us be the role models for our children and youth by advocating for and practicing gender equity. This way our boys will grow up appreciating the importance of supporting girls.

    Rightly said, the foundation of the future woman is the present girl. Women are natural nurturers and influencers, in other words, there is a seed of leadership in every girl. If well cultivated, the result can be far reaching. Train a girl...train a generation.

  • "LET GIRLS LEAD" should be nurtured by both parents and society and this will change Men's view on women.

    True, empowerment should start from when a girl child is born because she is the seed for women empowerment. Girls should be raised to be vocal and educated as this will make them excellent leaders in future.
