"That's why we speak about empowering women-for a better tomorrow, for a better humanity" - Dimalanta
Dr. Theresa B. Dimalanta, Chief Executive Officer of CSU Andrews Campus encouraged CSU faculty, personnel and students to fight for women empowerment during a flag raising ceremony held at CSU Andrew, March 5; as she emphasized that the program is not only a celebration for women but for humanity as well.
"Women are treated like lesser humanity beings. they are marginalized, sidelined, humiliated and kept away from all sources of power and freedom", Dimalanta said.
Moreover, women do not have access to higher education and cannot claim equal rights to their ancestral property. Most women do not have any role in decision making - she added.
In addition, education is the jkey to women empowerment, if a girl is educated, she will have confidence. she will have employable skills. Employment will lead her to financial independence. Entrepreneurship will make her stronger and daring to take up new challenges" she further said.
Furthermore, Dimalanta concluded her speech by saying that women are respected, there God makes His home; where they are not respected, all human actions remain unproductive.
Lastly, "if empowere, the hand that rocks the cradle can surely rule the world; complementing, creating a better tomorrow for everyone", Dimalanta ended.
