Educator Urges Encouragement Of Women In Politics

By G. Wellington Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, January 5 (LINA) -The Vice President for Academic Affairs of the Nimba County Community College (NCCC), Daiba Tozay, has appealed to political parties, civic  organizations, government and partners to encourage women participation in political governance.

The educator told LINA at the weekend that women can ably compete with their male counterparts if afforded the opportunity to build their self-esteem in this 21st century.

The Nimba College vice president observed that females were in the past not given the opportunities afforded their male counterparts due to the cultural politics preached by men who were against raising the esteem of women.

Tozay recalled the days when women were classified as inferior individuals who could achieve nothing better than being housewives.

Tozay described this mindset of the African society against women as archaic, and called for the interventions to help rebuild the broken values of women and girls by African traditional practices such as opting for boys to go to school while the girl child stayed at home.

She observed that the leadership of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is evidence that women, like men, also have values that would help transform Liberia.
