Reading Time: 3 minutes This day is important for all women to acknowledge and celebrate because it represents the resilience of the women who fought for us to have a voice in this society. It’s because of those women that I can write this article. It’s because of those women that women were able to go to school. It’s because of those women that we participate and are represented in the societal processes of Africa. Thus, it remains upon us to continue laying the foundations for which the next generation of women will break this glass ceiling.
