This year’s theme for International Women’s Day 2024 is, Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress, to achieve the theme, education, empowerment, inclusive policies, financial support, and cultural shifts are key strategies needed to promote gender equality and women’s advancement in the country.

Positive discrimination initiatives, also known as affirmative action, can be effective in addressing systemic inequalities and creating a more equitable society. However, clear criteria and safeguards must be in place to ensure fair implementation.

Challenges to implementing affirmative action include cultural and societal barriers, lack of political will, and structural obstacles that hinder women’s representation in leadership roles.

How do you manage your home, and office as well as other social responsibilities and still be able to maintain a successful career?

Balancing home, work, and social responsibilities as a career woman requires prioritization, effective time management, building a strong support system, self-care, flexibility, and a commitment to balance. As we celebrate International Women’s Day 2024, my advice for girl child and women is to empower themselves through education, raise their voices, support each other, break barriers, and advocate for gender equality to reach their full potential.
