Fempower INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S MONTH CELEBRATION 💐
June 29, 2022
Fempower International Women’s Day Message
Black is beautiful!
During the month of February, we celebrated Black History Month. This year’s theme was Black Health and Wellness. This theme honours not only the contributions of Black intellectuals and medical practitioners to Western medicine, but also other forms of knowledge (e.g., birth workers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, and so on) from across Africa.
Here at Fempower, we recognize the Black community’s achievements and experiences. May we never forget to stand up to injustice, prejudice, and inequality.
As we approach International Women’s Day in March, Let us honour women’s accomplishments and raise awareness about bias in the digital economy around the world. International Women’s Day is an opportunity to recognize and honour women’s achievements in the workplace. It has assisted in the strengthening of support for women’s rights groups and political and economic engagement. This day has special meaning for women in developing countries, whose rights may be severely limited. This year’s theme on International Women’s Day is #BreakTheBias.
Remarkable African Women Breaking Barriers in Health Care
More women are now increasingly taking up space and excelling in careers traditionally dominated by men, including science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) — and that includes medicine and health care. Here are a few exceptional women we should all be aware of who are breaking barriers and revolutionizing medicine on the African continent, as well as providing motivation for future generations of women in medicine.
