Have you ever been told that you can’t achieve a dream just because you are a girl? Most Nigerian girls are used to hearing statements like: “That is not a job for a girl”, “Why don’t you just think like a girl!” These words find a way of limiting most girls, keeping them from aspiring into exciting and high-profile professions. It is therefore not unexpected that 2 out of 5 Nigerian girls think that there are some jobs designed for girls and some for boys. They also soon begin to build aspirations based on these popular opinions held by the society.
The new #MyFutureStartsToday video from Always, the leader in global feminine care is a good conversation starter which aims to urge that girls and women should be empowered to live their life to their fullest potential.
You too can join the Always #MyFutureStartsToday initiative by tweeting about it using the hashtag #MyFutureStartsToday or encouraging school girls between the ages of 11 – 16 to write an essay on “My Future Starts Today: My Dream Career” which is to understand what is stopping them from achieving your dream?” Find out more at: www.facebook.com/alwaysnigeria
