The female staff of EXP Ghana, part of Africa’s largest and leading experiential agency, led by Lydia Parker Wricketts, the Business Development Director, organized an awareness creation campaign for school girls.

The event was to deliberate on the female reproductive system and to commemorate this year’s International Women’s Day celebration.

It was organized for pupils between ages 9 and 12 in the early hours of the day at the Bawaleshie B Basic school at East Legon.

Madam Wricketts said the objective was to educate the girls on the menstrual cycle (when it starts, what to expect, duration, how often it occurs etc.) accompanied with a talk forum with video and pictorial demonstrations on menstrual cycle.

She said the effort was held to drive positive behaviors among the pupils with regards to sanitary care.

Madam Wricketts urged the pupils to take their lessons seriously as it was the only means by which they could grow to become responsible adults.

She said at the end of the activity, the girls were taught and empowered to overcome some of the negative biases associated with menstruation as well as enforce positive behaviors of their sanitary care.

International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8 every year, has become a global day set aside to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

The International Women’s Day 2019 campaign theme of “Balance for Better” is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world. Celebrations to mark the day focus on driving campaigns to: Create Gender balance, overcome bias and negative stereotypes associated with girls/women, create awareness on key issues/challenges of women etc.
