International Women's Day: Empowering women is important, Trish Regan says

McDonald's flips its golden arches to make a statement

In a statement personally signed by him on Thursday, March 8, 2018, Dr. Ubah who affirmed that the importance of the existence of women must be recognised at all times, said, "Every year we celebrate women's day with a lot of enthusiasm, joy and fanfare".

She admitted that although women had been able to call their own into action to fight against gender disparities and had succeeded to an extent, there was the need to deepen the fight against socio-economic, political and cultural indulgence, and make more progress as there was still a long way to go in terms of achieving equality at all levels of society.

McDonald's has temporarily flipped its famous golden arches to look like a "W" - a move it says it made to recognize International Women's Day. It was founded by Lilipearl Baaba Otoo, a journalist with the Business and Financial Times and a gender advocate of Plan International-Ghana. All over the world, we are experiencing strong and concerted activism towards gender parity.

The giant yellow "M" that represents McDonald's globally was flipped to mark women's day by an outlet in Lynwood, California reports the Business Indsider. We are going to continue to change the world, in the brightest way! Today, we have 23 per cent female representation as against zero per cent representation in 2016.

Delivering her keynote address, Laure Beaufils commended the NSE for setting out a day like this to celebrate women. Since then, it has seen larger celebrations around the world. We must not be afraid to rock the boat.

And she said to me, they offered her a job on the women's page, the fashion page, because that was the only thing you could do if you were a woman who got a job at The Daily Telegraph in London in 1967. We are superwomen! All ages, shapes, sizes, walks of life.I am sending my biggest hug to you. However, women are rarely encouraged to compete for such positions. She applauded NSE for investing and advocating for women's empowerment in the work place, market place and community, moments before she sounded the NSE Closing Gong.

In addition, two female scholarship recipients shared the challenges they faced in attaining higher education and discussed how the MNBSP scholarship transformed their lives.
