The theme for the 2020 International Women’s Day is “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”. An equal world refers to a world where our peculiarities do not stand against us in whatever social sphere we find ourselves. We must celebrate the achievements of women across various spheres of human endeavor and consider that women face a lot of challenges when climbing up the career ladder. The odds become increasingly stacked when the woman in question is a person of color.
The fight for equality is not just a fight for women but a fight for humanity. This is because a race where one gender is marginalized will ultimately struggle in the actualization of its full potential.
On this day, we at Nigerian NGO wish to encourage you, our dear women, to continue to take your place at the table. Every victory won by women in the workplace, in politics or domestic living is victory for thousands of women in the coming generations.
We wish you a Happy International Women’s Day.
