Senator Taylor Nudges Women To Transform Society
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, February 17 (LINA) –The Chairperson of the Women Legislative Caucus of Liberia, Senator Jewel Howard Taylor, has challenged Liberian women to take the necessary steps to transform their lives and society.

She said when women pursue their desires “with every fiber of their being, they can attain their dreams and desire to transform lives in society.”

Senator Taylor proffered the challenge in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Tuesday at her residence in Congo Town, outside Monrovia.

“Many questions can be answered when women are given both the right and obligation to be a critical part of the transformation needed in today's world which is possible when they are given the chance to participate in making decisions that affect the society,” the Bong County lawmaker noted.

She observed that despite the negativity surrounding women leadership, it has been proven that women’s participation in business, civil society, governance and political leadership brings with it many benefits.

Taylor named some of the benefits as the building of a sustainable and peaceful nation, the assurance of good governance as well as helping to balance the scale in decision-making processes, especially as it relates to the issues of poverty, human rights, economic empowerment, education, health, peace, and democracy.

She cited other benefit as creating and sustaining successful enterprises due to the inherent patience and resilience of women to initiate and see processes through to the very end.

“As a result of the current positive trend being set by women in most countries, there is now a global call and commitment to creating and securing a place at the decision-making table for more women, including places where it would have previously been unimaginable and impossible,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Women Legislative Caucus Chairperson has extolled efforts by all who championed the removal of barriers that prevented women’s inclusion and participation in core decision-making processes of their respective countries.
