Social support network for women in the offin
Accra, May 11, GNA - Mrs Eugenia Tachie-Menson, the former Vlisco Ambassador 2014, in collaboration with Joy FM's Thought Leadership, has organised an event dubbed: 'Conversations with Brave Mothers'.
It was aimed at raising awareness on issues confronting women that have not been mainstreamed by the society and the media.
Speaking at the event, Mrs Tachie-Menson said the event was the maiden edition of a series of conversations on issues concerning women in the society.
The event was to commemorate Mother's Day celebration, which fell on May 10.
The day is set aside to honor mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers for their contribution to family and the society.
Mrs Tachie-Menson said this year's conversation focused on the lives of women, who had lost their children either at birth or shortly after, how they re-grouped and built their lives beyond the trauma.
The Educator and Passionate Women's Advocate also said as part of the event, the group would initiate a social Support network for the women to share ideas and experiences.
Dr Annie Gaisie, a psychologist commended the organisers of the event for the programme, saying issues concerning women need to be given great attention.
She urged the public to double check on their psychologist before patronising their services.
Mrs Dzifa Abla Gomashie, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts called on the society to strengthen family ties to better support women for national development.
'We need to create talk zones to share ideas and experience to enhance women development,' she added.
The organisers provided a psychologist to share practical insights into how the larger family could provide support, and the various coping mechanisms available to women and their families.
