Chief Justice urges women to empower themselves 3/3/2008

The Chief Justice Mrs Georgina Wood, has urged women to acquire education and empower themselves to be able to take up challenges.

She said the struggle for empowerment and equality could not achieve any results if they lacked the requisite qualification to assume higher positions in the society.

The Chief Justice was addressing a thanksgiving service to round-off Ghana’s 50th anniversary celebrations, organised by the Mothers Union of the Catholic Church at Nkawkaw on Sunday.

She said “Whiles I urge women to be assertive and advocate change, I equally challenge them to eschew laziness and envy, which have always been associated with women, and rather educate themselves.”

According to her, women were the backbone of society and ought to be abreast of times to justify their call for inclusion in the development efforts.

Justice Wood reminded women of their responsibility to properly cater for and nurture their children stressing that the fight for empowerment should not take them away from such core responsibilities.

She thanked the Union for the support given her when she was appointment to the office of Chief Justice.

The District Chief Executive for Kwahu West, Nana Kofi Kesse, asked the people to support government policies that were directed at championing their cause.

He appealed to the Catholic Church to establish a senor high school for girls in the area.

Reverend Father Paul Laweh of the St Michael Catholic Church asked Ghanaians to work hard to propel the country’s development forward.

He advocated the teaching of religion at all levels of the educational system.

Rev Laweh called on parents to invest in their children’s education and asked political leaders to be transparent in the handling of national affairs.

He said it was not for nothing that a woman had been appointed Chief Justice and that it was God’s way of encouraging women to acquire education and to empower them to enable them to find their rightful places in society.
