Gender Equality Benefits Society
Did you know that gender equality cannot be fully attained if men are not involved? Did you know that gender equality is not primarily about being ‘fair’ to women – it benefits the entire society too, both men and women included. Research shows that gender equal societies enjoy better health, stronger economic growth and higher security. That was the theme for this year’s Annual General Meeting of MenEngage Africa Alliance, which was held in Abuja, Nigeria, on 12 and 13 February.
