Commenting on the theme: DigitAll: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality, the brand Ambassador; Rita Chika Ezenwa revealed that given their enthusiasm, and managerial abilities in building a formidable home and the society at large, women have the potential to contribute immensely to the socio-economic development of a nation if well equipped.

    “A woman is the personification of ageless beauty, selfless love, purity, grace, and dignity. She symbolises virtue, great inner strength, tremendous patience, resilience, and fortitude. The same values she inculcates in everyone around her.

    “She is the pillar of strength to her family, Society, and humanity as a whole. Women are the backbone of a Nation’s Economy. There is a need therefore to create an enabling environment and opportunities for the socio-economic empowerment of women”, she explained.

    Continuing, Amb. Ezenwa frowned at the fact that despite these inherent attributes, women’s empowerment is still a burning issue in the polity. According to her, this is in recognition of the vast number of women with little or no education and skills to enable them to support their livelihoods or become active in the country’s mainstream economy.

    “Therefore, we must bridge this gender digital divide so that girls are not disadvantaged when it comes to digital adoption, have lower levels of access to and use of digital technology than boys in order to benefit from digital innovations and technology breakthroughs in the same way as boys”, MFOH Nigeria charged.
