Re: Rural women: striving for gender transformative impacts

SALOME AMAOInternational Forestry Students AssociationNigeria

Poor education or lack of education is one of the barriers which has resulted in women missing out opportunities and this is a direct consequence of poverty in most africa countries. A girl/woman with little or no education will have a little understanding on what gender transformative impact really means.

Another barrier is lack of self esteem: A girl/woman that doesn't feel good about herself or believe in her abilities will not strive to be an agent of transformative impact.

To overcome some of these barriers, there should be a redefining of parental orientation as regards sponsoring the girl child education and also organising programmes that will broaden the knowledge of the girl child on gender roles and also build her confidence.
