MP for Agona East, Obaatanpa Queenstar Pokuah Sawyerr has urged women to remain focused on their special God-given duty on earth.
In a statement to mark this year’s International Women’s Day, Obaatanpa Sawyerr observed that, “women have a vital God-given role to play in making the world a better place. In spite of the challenges and hardship you face, try hard to remain focused for there is a reward for you.”
She charged women not to allow the attitude of some men to derail them from this special duty, noting that, failure to remain on course disrupts the course of life.
She said: “The world shall become a worse place to live in if women become incapacitated or switch from their traditional role as the molders of society and the first point of call for children to pick up attitudes and behavioral traits. Thus they need to try to ignore anything that would keep them away from that responsibility.”
She promised to continue empowering women in her constituency and anywhere else in order to make them the true catalysts in society.
She appealed to government to create avenues and opportunities for women to alleviate the burden on them, adding that “An empowered woman is a woman on a special mission to redeem generations.”
Ghana joined the world to mark International Women’s Day, a day set aside to recognize the role of women in society.
