@WendyWokoma @AskAwayHealth @WHO Thank you for those ideas!
Simple, but practical and EVERYONE can adopt.

So we are done for tonight!
Of course the conversation doesn’t end here. We know that gender inequality affects a woman’s economic state and impacts her health.
@WendyWokoma @AskAwayHealth @WHO If women are poorly represented at decision making, will our real needs be met?
It’s important to note that gender equality does NOT disrespect any man - rather it allows for harnessing of the potential in women to be used to allow development for the benefit of all.
@WendyWokoma @AskAwayHealth @WHO That was such an informative session.
Thanks to our speaker @WendyWokoma for the insightful look at this topic & to everyone who’s joined in the conversation - we appreciate you!

@SylviaKK @AskAwayHealth Good evening Everyone! Thanks @AskAwayHealth team for this opportunity.
1a. Gender for me is beyond the physical characteristics that make one female and another male to the underlying social construct as seen in defined roles. #BalanceForBetterNaija
@SylviaKK @AskAwayHealth 1b. It relates to a particular picture/identity and stereotype that comes to mind when a particular gender is mentioned. #BalanceForBetterNaija
@SylviaKK @AskAwayHealth 1c. Finally @WHO defines 'gender' as the socially constructed roles, behaviours, activities, and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for men and women." #BalanceForBetterNaija
