Professor Kehinde Taiwo of the Department of Food and Science Technology, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, has canvassed the establishment of gender equity in all spheres of life saying it will ensure that women are treated equally and fairly as their male counterparts. She noted that women have come a long away with female representation in all walks of life, attributing increase in women participation in governance to deliberate policies and measures adopted by some governments.
The speaker however decried the fact that women are still worlds away from equity as while there are equal s of men and women at the bottom of various organizations, there are fewer women up the ladder.
Making a case for gender equity, she said where gender inequality exists, it is generally women who are excluded and disadvantaged in relation to decision making and access to economic and social resources. Taiwo observed that the idea that men and women are equal is much more accepted than ever has been in the past and urged men and women to work together and build equal partnerships.
Another speaker at the event, Mrs. She FUTA NEWS described health as a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing not merely absence of disease adding that due to the prevalence of breast cancer, it has become imperative for women to have regular check-ups to increase their chances of survival in the event of its occurrence. Tinu Adebolu said, hitherto male dominated professions have been led in recent times by female presidents.
This feat according to her attests to the resilience, determination and unyielding spirt of women. The Director however decried the fact that in spite of this welcome development, women are still underrepresented in various fields of endeavor while violence against women is still rampant.
She therefore called for increase in of women in decision bodies, politics and other male dominated careers so that the female can also contribute her quota. In his remarks the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Joseph Fuwape said IWD is a celebration of the sacrifice and achievements of the womenfolk over the years in politics, business and academics.
