Dubai, African Women task FG on gender bills, say Women are changing the world.



Some African women, as well as ladies from the United Arab Emirates, have asked the Nigerian National Assembly to reverse its decision on the rejected gender bills, claiming that no country can advance unless women are promoted.

The women were in Dubai for the AfroZons Soundoff, an event hosted by the Dubai Department of Economy and Tourism.

They stated that every responsible government should be concerned about women’s issues, and that gender-based issues should be given priority attention because, according to them, women have unique ways of attracting development and keeping their countries peaceful.

According To the guardian Newspaper , a radio host from Tanzania, Ms. Kamala Harry, said, “The gender  base bill is a very important  bill to pass, i dont know why it should be rejected because you cannot promote the economy without  promoting the women. The women do multiple tasks. 

She said, “Currently,  my country has a female president  and she is  the first in history. She has attracted alot of developments and our economy  is thriving . Every responsible government  should care about the issues of women because the women  can  break grounds and achieve great things “

 “As we celebrate   international women day ,  the Nigeria  government  should  look at the  bills again and find a way to accept them  or review some of them instead of rejecting them  “
