  • Description

    LEADING GHANAIAN FEMINISTS CONDUCTED A RALLY IN ACCRA THIS WEEK, ON "FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS AND THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN NATIONAL AFFAIRS". MRS EMILY HESSE, A WELL KNOWN VOLUNTARY SOCIAL WORKER, CALLED ON GHANAIAN MARKET WOMEN TO UNDERSTAND THEIR RIGHTS AND DUTIES, AND TAKE MORE INTEREST IN NATIONAL AFFAIRS.

    MRS HESSE TOLD THE WOMEN THEY HAD EVERY RIGHT TO DEMAND PROTECTION FROM THE POLICE, AND THAT IT WAS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE POLICE TO ENCOURAGE PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE AMONG THE WOMEN OF THE MARKET PLACE.

    MRS HESSE EXHORTED HER COUNTRYWOMEN TO THINK FOR THEMSELVES, POLITICALLY AS WELL AS SOCIALLY. SHE SAID ONE OF THE MAJOR CIVIC DUTIES WHICH WOULD FALL ON A WOMAN WAS THE NEED TO VOTE FOR THE MAN OR WOMAN THEY CONSIDERED MOST HONEST, INTELLIGENT AND PATRIOTIC.

    AN ACCRA MEDICAL PRACTISIONER, DR H.S. BANNERMAN, ALSO ADDRESSED THE GROUP . DR BANNERMAN, A MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE CENTRE OUTLINED THE BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, AND APPEALED TO HIS LISTENERS TO BE AWARE OF THEIR RIGHTS.

    CHAIRMAN OF THE FUNCTION WAS MRS E.M. NUNOO, WIFE OF THE COMMISSIONER OF POLICE ADMINISTRATION AND NLC MEMBER MR J.E.O. NUNOO. MRS NUNOO ASSURED THE WOMEN THAT ANY PROBLEMS THEY HAD WOULD BE INVESTIGATED. SHE CALLED OF THEM TO CO-OPERATE WITH THE AUTHORITIES TO ENSURE PEACE AND HARMONY IN THE MARKETS.
