Not yet time to celebrate women

It is not yet time to celebrate women; a celebration is always justified where there is victory.

We do not have victory yet with the number of women raped, women abused in domestic violence, women murdered, women dying during child birth, women whose children are killed during war, women whose children go to bed without food, women whose children are denied an education, women left widows as a result of war, women locked out of government roles, women locked out of round tables when decisions concerning them are being made, women locked out of boardrooms.

Women let us all join hands and arise to take our roles as leaders, please note leadership role does not mean being authoritative, it means you become at the forefront of solving all the above issues affecting us.
