Today’s event, which coincided with International Women’s Day, highlighted among other things, the gains made by women in the space, while bringing to the fore, the challenges and opportunities that exist.
Two panel sessions led by Naa Ashorkor and Nhyira Addo of Joy FM, spoke to pertinent issues women in the sector face including sexual exploitation.
Sunday’s event was significant for many reasons as it sought to shore up interest, and consolidate the sustained efforts made over the years in the push for female empowerment within the space and beyond.
