Ghana: Obstacles to the Advancement of Women

Categories: Ghana, Citizen Media, Governance, Labor, Politics, Women & Gender

Betty Mould Iddrisu [1], jurist and Minister of Justice of Ghana, writes [2] [fr] on pambazuka.org:

To reach the upper level is rare, and once you have arrived there, you still have to face hostility and doubts about your abilities, because you are a woman. A woman at the top works harder than a man to prove her skills, and yet she still must face entrenched prejudices and hostility, in her role as manager and leader, in a work environment largely dominated by males.
