Girl child education over years has been taken seriously over the years and has taken a very different trajectory from what it used to be in the past. Women are given equal educational opportunities and are not limited to just the roles society deemed fit for women.
Women can balance being modern educated career people with the traditional roles that are required of them. What is also gradually changing is the fact that our men are being very supportive and avoid putting women in particular boxes. They are graciously moving out of the way of women and affording them the chance to excel and accomplish many group-breaking achievements.
Ghana’s business sector has strong intellectual women giving the men good competition for their money. They are establishing businesses that provide jobs to the natives of the country and are helping in building the socio-economic status of the country. The amazing part of this is the fact that they do this along with raising and maintaining a family and they have supportive men to thank.
