    Great stuff….but just thinking…. sistaz, dont we think this whole female emancipation thngy is being overflogged ? Must it always be about the woman??….pardon my thinking please but I posit that this is conceding to the tenets of the woman being a weaker vessel but hey there are sure stuff the male folks can learn from us too, we ve done very well in business, politics, governance , sports, religion…..hey lets get over ourselves……C’mmon

      This is a nonsensical comment. If it is not apparent to you why women should empower one another in a world where women are statistically disadvantaged (far too many things to list here), then just have a seat instead of spewing rubbish. Kmt.

      She does have a point though. If we simply say we want to empower our generation, not just women, but have women run the program or be the chief contributors in the program, we would achieve the same goal of showing our women that we can be much more than society currently deems us to be. On the other hand, you also have a point in that women are disadvantaged and need to be given equal opportunities.

      Just a word though, state your point without insulting others’ comments. We are generally more constructive and empowering to each other when we cease & desist from destructive criticism. You’ve both got valid points, don’t take away from your own point by sounding negative.

      Twix it is not over flogged…women are birthers/nurturers/pace setter…the reason the world is upside down is because of women…we have to be empowered and educated to help lessen what is going on today…where there is poverty so many bad things happen trust me if you are a woman and u are not aware of what is going on, you are probably still too young to understand and if you are grown and asking this question i guess you have a perfect life and everything has been handed down to you by your parents, or sugar daddies…so please not because you have a computer and can comment on here means that other women all over the world are not suffering. women are suffering.

    I just had to comment… @Twix pls rethink before u comment. Women empowering eachoda is good for continuous development of the society . Whether we like it or not, we are in a society which favours d men than women. But Thank God for the UN which is trying to bring a form of equity (not equality) amongst men and women. Women re jst tryna help eachoda nd dats a good tin.

    Good thinking , Twix! When the women are done empowering each other in some age from now. Things would change to racial empowerment, or ethnic empowerment. Am not sure what happened to human beings empowering one another. Entitled elites and children of the worst women abusers rambling on and on again. If you changed the nation and the place was a level playing field for all humans within the space, would anyone need empowerment. Abeg make we here word bo!

    @Twix. I agree men should not be excluded. They may learn a thing or two from successful female entrepreneurs who work twice as hard. However, due to the low-level of financial independence of many women, I believe it’s a good development for many young female entrepreneurs to learn, network and be empowered. I encourage many young females and males to take advantage of any opportunities to launch their business. Our economy is dependent on the successes achieved by young entrepreneurs.
