One of Ghana's achievements since independence has been to encourage our females to join the political arena. Many of our great female leaders have made it to Parliament House, and we hope that in the future, our members of Parliament will be at least 60% men and 40% women, if not more.
Today, we're going to show you one of the female members of Parliament and how lucky Ghanaians was to have her as a member of Parliament.
Irene Naa Torshie Addo (born September 30, 1970) is a Ghanaian politician and lawyer who served as the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and a former Member of Parliament for the Tema West Constituency.
She is a lawyer who graduated from the University of Warwick with an LLM in Gender and Development Studies in 1999.
She is a Christian who is a Baptist by denomination and is divorced with two children. Samantha and Simone are her two daughters from her first marriage, and Stanely is her son. Samantha Abigail Nana Adobea Addo, the oldest. Simone Antonia Naa Adoley Addo, the second, and Stanely Walter Kwamena Adom Addo, the youngest.
Below are some beautiful photos of her.
