“Time and history have never seen eye to eye .Time laughs at history and time and time and time again. Time traps history in a lie .But we always ,somehow, managed to roar history back onstage to take another bow to justify, to sanctify the journey until now” by James Baldwin

Gender equality is not just about enhancing women’s status as a whole, but also respecting women as individual citizens and accepting they have different needs based on their socioeconomic backgrounds.
