Today, we look at Stéphanie Frappart becoming the first woman World Cup referee, women being flogged in Afghanistan for shopping without male guardians, and why a transgender woman in Qatar is “very afraid.”
But first, in Nigeria, Danidari foundation is empowering women in Plateau in politics. According to Vanguard, there are several reasons women’s access to politics has been limited.
This includes: economic barriers, financial difficulties, poor leadership skills, lack of cooperation, discrimination by men, cultural and religious barriers. To encourage women, the Danidari foundation is organising a day where women in different political parties can discuss issues that obstructing their growth in political spheres.
“We intend to carry out a capacity development training, build the modules and guidelines that would give technical support to women to build a crop of women that would be very active in political parties and the governance process in the country,” Zigwai Tagwai, the Project Lead for Women Political Empowerment Project, a subsidiary of the foundation, told Vanguard.
The Dinidari Foundation is, after all, aimed at women empowerment, women support in different areas, economically, financially, politically as well as social issues like gender-based violence.
