It has been a known fact in the country that, in the media industry,the women are often not paid much attention to.
Afia Pokua on her observations have seen that the Ghana media does not support women. She gave examples of her colleagues she started with who are nowhere to be found in the industry.
Taking to her Facebook page, Afia Pokua recounted when in 2016 they met the US Embassy in Ghana where they were eulogised as strong women and encouraged them to stay on course for the Media.
As of today she has realised that most of her colleagues who were present at the meeting has already left the industry to start a new life somewhere else.
Taking to her Facebook page, Afia Pokua recounted " 4 years ago the US Embassy in Ghana met all the identifiable STRONG WOMEN in the media in Accra to encourage us to stay on course. Here we are but Dzifa Bampoe has left the industry. Nana Ama of Citi FM has gone back to school. Many of us will leave soon to mind our business. This industry doesn't exactly support women."
