|NSE Calls For Gender Equality, Women’s Empowerment by Okwyla: 3:57am On Mar 09|
In celebrating this year International Women’s day, the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has called for gender equality and women empowerment. Speaking at the fourth edition of NSE International Women’s day symposium themed “Press For Progress, the chief executive officer of NSE, Oscar Onyema said that the theme of the symposium is not just another theme for another edition of the International women’s day, saying it is a call to action to spur women and men into taking bold steps towards closing the gender gap. Onyema said: “It is saddening to note that with over 100 years of devoting a day, to celebrating the achievements of women and discussing steps towards achieving gender parity and social justice for women, the World Economic Forum (WEF) in its 2017 Gender Gap report averred that our dream of achieving parity across gender required more than 200 years to become a reality.” He added that “as one of Africa’s foremost securities exchanges and member of the Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative (SSEI), we are deeply committed to leveraging our position to accelerate the achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number five which seeks to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030.” According to Onyema, the Exchange took steps to address the lack of female representation on our National Council by electing three eminent female members at the last AGM. Today, we have 23 per cent female representation as against zero per cent representation in 2016. “Last year, we initiated the NSE GEM (Gender Empowerment Men), a group of male employees at the NSE who act as mentors to young female employees, helping them to navigate the workplace and grow their career. “Under the four pillars of our CSR program namely: Workplace, Marketplace, Community and Environment, we continue to seek ways to celebrate women and play our part in closing the gender gap.”

Women empowerment is good but has got to have a limit. Cus d moment all women take themselves equal to men, thats d beginning of d end. If u take a critical look of women in power u would knw.

Gender equality can never be possible when most women don't pay their own bills, when they keep asking for recharge cards, phones and other stupid stuffs that they could easily buy if only they're not lazy or see sex as a form of payment. I'll support the gender equality bill until women of our generation start bringing more to the table and also until they start showing their capability to stand on their own without the help of a man.

Empower women and see hunger in the land reduced to the bare-minimum - I'm in total support of women emancipation. And of course, I see no evil in gender equality - egalitarianism doesn't mean absence of segregation. Segregation in this regard means first between equals - with man as the first - not a superior and his subordinate.
A sane fully emancipated woman needn't to be told that independence doesn't mean absence of thoughtfulness.

Those individuals that are pushing in for gender inequality don't know the negative implications...
...Women should note that,everything will now be a 50-50 thing,even in marriage..,no more my Husband will take care of me.....if this is acceptable,then no problem.

But then, you guys have got no choice than to accept it.

Suko110:Will your life end if that happens?

Gavrelino123:Why should you be more concerned about the "implications"?
Strong women have already been contributing immensely to their families finance.
