IWD: ‘A Gender Equal World Can Be Healthier and More Harmonious – NBA Women Forum

Date:

The Women Forum of the Nigerian Bar Association in celebration of the 2020 International Women’s Day, urged all women especially female lawyers in Nigeria to commit to ensuring gender equality and work assiduously to promote a gender-equal society noting that a Gender equal world would be healthier, wealthier and more hamonious.

The above is contained in the message to women on the International Women’s Day Celebration by the Forum.

Read the full text of the message below:

“In line with the special efforts by the International community, gender activists and the  acknowledgement of the unique roles of women in global development, the NBA Women Forum

Celebrates all women and more specially, the female lawyers in Nigeria. Particularly, we celebrate the achievements and special contributions of Women to the development of the Law in Nigeria.”

We profoundly appreciate the special interest and determination of Paul Usoro SAN, President of the Nigerian Bar Association in promoting the cause of women and for resuscitating the Women Forum thereby setting female lawyers on the right pedestal for success.

This year, the theme for the celebration is, “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights.” This theme is quite apt and very fundamental to gender advocacy.

We reinstate the fact that ‘a gender equal world can be healthier, wealthier and more harmonious’.

We therefore encourage all female lawyers in Nigeria to commit to ensuring gender equality and work assiduously to promote a gender-equal society.

We emphasize that as women, ‘we can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.’

The NBA Women Forum hopes to work hard to achieve gender equality  throughout the year solely to empower female lawyers in Nigeria. This, we believe,  will impact the lives of female lawyers positively and promote professional growth and development.

This is NBA Women Forum. Empowering the Lives of Female Lawyers….

Happy Women’s Day!
