Abuja, 8th March 2022

Every year, on the 8th of March, people across the world celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. But beyond the celebration, we gather to advocate for women’s rights, lobby for accelerated gender parity, and also raise awareness on unanswered gender issues.

This day (and every day) we’re honored, as Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria (PPFN), to recognize the passion and reinforce the continued commitment of our board members, management team, staffs and volunteers, dedication to ensure the provision of a safe space for women at work, homes and everywhere in the society.

The central theme for this year celebration is, Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow”. We believe that by ensuring equal access and enabling environment for women and girls to thrive, we are securing better future prospects for our society.

The campaign hashtag for this year is #BreakTheBias. This is a call to action to shun aggressively all stereotypes that serves as hurdles to the advancement of women and girls in our society. From the laws that discriminates to the retrogressive norms that harms, we have to remain poised toward breaking the biases. We are also particularly excited about this because the campaign theme aligns with our vision, “a society where all individuals freely (devoid of bias) exercise their right to and choice of quality health services”.  Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women and girls to access health services especially reproductive health.

Knowing that bias exists is not enough; action is needed to level the playing field. At PPFN, we are committed to promoting gender equality in our workplace and in the work we do. We will continue to empower women and girls to exercise their sexual and reproductive rights by extending access to life-saving services and information. As an organization, we will continue to foster women’s leadership through the allocation of at least 50+1% seat to women in our board composition. This will unlock women’s potential and increase their control over resources and access to opportunities. We will continue to lead and support advocacy for an enabling policy environment and ensuring women’s active engagement in advocacy and community engagement.

As we celebrate the 2022 International Women’s Day, the Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria (PPFN) is calling on all stakeholders to rededicate and reposition themselves to improving the quality of life for our women and girls. Let us reinforce and support the government of Nigeria towards the attainment of the family planning 2030 (FP2030) re-commitment. On our part, we will continually support Nigeria’s women in their quest to realize their full potential. We are deeply committed to supporting any initiative aimed at addressing various challenges and barriers they face in their day-to-day engagement and interaction with the society. PPFN will continue to engage in initiatives that are geared towards the advancement of women, and promote the celebration of women’s achievement. PPFN call on all to raise awareness against bias. Let us take action to break the bias by standing for women today (and everyday) by promoting their rights, speaking up for them and encouraging them to raise their own voices.

“Imagine a gender equal world.

A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.

A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

A world where difference is valued and celebrated.

Together we can forge women’s equality.

Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias”. (IWD Website)

I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my
ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just
trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
