This year’s International Women’s Day theme is “Making it Happen”. In Cameroon as usual the theme offered by the Ministry of Women’s Empowerment and Family is different: Assessing the Implementation of the Beijing Platform 20 years later.
Better Breed is questioning this theme. We would like to know just what the average Cameroonian knows about the Beijing Platform. We know it is habitual for International Women’s Day to be celebrated with livery like some sort of fair by women of all walks of life in Cameroon. But do they really know what they are celebrating? Do you?
Do you know why it is important to recognize Women’s Day?
Why do you think it is important to advocate for the rights of girls and women?
What do you think of when you hear of Women’s Day?
