Tuesday 12th December, 2017 will forever remain in the heart of many as Ghana made a profound statement of intent to achieve Gender Equality through the Launch of the #HeForshe Campaign by the President of the Republic Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

HeForSheGhana is a local movement of the Global HeForShe solidarity campaign for the advancement of women initiated by UN Women. Its goal is to achieve equality by encouraging men and boys as agents of change and take action against negative inequalities faced by women and girls.

Launching the HeForSheGhana Movement, President Nana Addo pledged to;
1- Facilitating the passing of the Affirmative Action bill in 2018,
to enable women’s participation and representation in political and public decision-making.
2- Allocating a minimum of 30% of resources to women, under
the special development initiatives of my Government, including the “One District, One Factory”, “Planting for food
and jobs”, “One Village, One Dam” “One million dollar per constituency”.
3- Reducing the number of early/forced marriages and negative and harmful traditional/cultural practices in Ghana by 2030.
The Government has already committed funds under the 2018 national budget to support this effort.

The President, further, called on all decision-makers, law-makers, traditional leaders, and men and boys to become champions of women’s rights and agents of change across the country's 10 regions and beyond.

Prior to the official Launch of the HeForShe Campaign in Ghana under the auspices of the President of the Republic Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on 12th December, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection in collaboration with the UN Women, today, held a media launch of the HeforSheGhana Campaign.
The campaign is aimed at mobilizing over two million men to stand up and support women and take actions that will lead to empowerment and gender equality for both men and women. The use of men is motivated by the fact that achieving gender equality is a collective responsibility and a mutual agenda for both men and women.
The HeForShe is centred on three key issues; affirmative action, ending negative traditional practices and economic empowerment of women.
The HeForShe campaign is further purposed to encourage men to be responsible for their children and family, to improve care and maintenance and curb the menace of street children. It will ensure a society that promotes respect for women and reciprocal respect for men.
Speaking at the media launch, Hon. Otiko Afisah Djaba said "for Ghana to achieve gender equality we must strive to create a conducive and enabling environment where men and boys will rise in support of women and girls; where men will support their women to do the household chores like helping to cook for the family, going grocery shopping, preparing the children for school, supporting their women to climb the economic ladder, supporting girls’ education and skills development and encouraging the general growth of women and girls". She further called on all men, boys and the media in Ghana to sign onto the HeForShe platform in Ghana to enable the country achieve its target of getting two million men and boys as HeForShe advocates.
