MY VOICE OUR EQUAL FUTURE (Theme of the 2020 International day of girl child)

written by Odilichukwu Frances October 11, 2020


However, our focus now is not on gender equality but on the role of girl child(ren), and women’s voices in building an equal future. It is important to understand that equality in this context is beyond mathematical calculations. Equality in this context refers to fairness, and access to the same opportunities. This may sound like a broken record but when we look more closely in the world, we realize that only few women attain certain socio-political heights in the world, except in very few matrilineal societies where inheritance is matrilineal— which is also not a guarantee for the women still.

Another point to be established here is that the voice of a person is necessary for the validation of a person’s wants or needs, and a person’s decision. Without hearing a person’s voice or opinion on something that concerns them, an alien opinion has been enforced, and a voice has been made dumb.


Strange it may sound, but time and time again, the voice of women and girls have been shut across the globe.

You are shutting voices:

When you tell a girl to satisfy your sexual needs in order to get a job.
When you deprive her of education for economic reasons yet you send her brothers to school.
When you treat her as a property, instead  of a human that she is.
When you force her into child marriage.
When you cajole her for being a spinster at a certain age.
When you reduce her to just a cook or a baby making machine.
When you declare her unfit for a job because you assume her gender isn’t fit for it.
When you define her only by the gender roles that society approves.
When you shame her for having a blood stain from her menstrual flow.
When you verbally manipulate and abuse her.
When you are domestically violent with her.
When you consider her a lesser animal, or a sex toy.
When you sexually harass, rape and abuse her.
When you tell her that the “Mrs.” title is her only hope of societal relevance.

There are so many other ways women and girls are made dumb, and such should not be made a norm— because women and girls are first human, before their sexes are identified at birth.


Most importantly the perpetrators of these acts are men, women, and a larger number of the society.

Fortunately, a good number of women have risen above limitations and their echoes of their voices have been heard locally, and globally. Some of these women include: Dora Akunyili, Ngozi Okonkwo-Iweala, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rose Park, Oprah Winfrey, Kathryn Kuhlman, Folorunsho Alakija, Mary Slessor, Mary Sumner, Florence Nightingale, Funmilayo Ransome Kuti, and so many other women both of blessed memories and living legends.

A lot of young women today are still rising above these circumstances— leaving their footprints in the sands of time. Indeed, history will surely note them, and posterity will recognize them as legends.

If men and women coexist in a society, it means that both men and women must create the future they want to be— hence, should be given the same opportunities.

Nobody can explain the miracle of gestation and childbirth, hence the girl child, like the boy child must be allowed to groom and use her voice because “your voice and My voice will build our equal future”.

Did you know these realities on CBD OIL and Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil? Cannabinoids are separated from hemp using supercritical CO2 extraction. Thanks to contemporary technology, the resulting solution is tidy, free of heavy metals and unnecessary waxes, naturally present in the plant, and the sucked liquid has a common, oily consistency. CBD oil includes cannabidiol as a base ingredient and might contain only trace amounts of tetrahydroxycannabidiol (THC). Works as a memory enhancer, improving concentration and coordination of motions, eliminating swelling and reoccurring infections. It enhances the conduction of stimuli in the course of autoimmune diseases (numerous sclerosis, amyotrophic sclerosis). It is suggested by doctors and pharmacists as an antioxidant and compound that obstructs the action of proinflammatory cytokines (proteins), e.g. in Crohn’s disease or ulcerative intestine. RSO oil has a low CBD content, while high THC. The synergistic (enhancing) action of CBD and THC relative to each other is utilized here. Both cannabinoids can do much more together than when utilized individually. Both cannabis oil type CBD and RSO also include other cannabinoids, such as cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG). The secret is not, nevertheless, that CBD often has actually a composition expanded to include flavones, flavonoids, terpenes, terpenoids, amino acids and omega acids. The distinction is primarily due to intentions directing humankind to utilize one or the other item. CBD medical cannabis oil is a rather advantageous mix of cannabinoids, designed to protect against 21st century disease. It’s best to use all of these compounds together, as nature created them and enclosed in cannabis inflorescences. Oil of cannabis in a type of pastime APR includes percentages of CBD, balanced by the existence of THC. Makers concentrate on the synergistic effect of one substance relative to the other, while abandoning the presence of CBC and CBG. Why such a choice? – Modern scientific research study reveals that CBD + THC cope with serious autoimmune illness, while CBC or CBG reveal very little activity in the presence of both compounds, much like flavones, terpenes or flavonoids, therefore their material in the option seems to be unnecessary. In addition, the cannabis stress from which THC and CBD are obtained include minimal amounts of other cannabinoids. RSO oil is completely illegal in Poland, which is why it can not be obtained in any legally running shop on the marketplace. Obviously, there are a number of amateur techniques for getting it, but it’s great to understand that compounds acquired synthetically in home labs doubt, untried, and the result unknown. The solvent for the production of home RSO is usually gasoline, alcohol and even kerosene, which instead of treating, toxin. Alcohols and their like hinder cannabinoids, and so in reality, they don’t bring anything new to the medical world. Marijuana oil has currently marked a brand-new era in which man ceased to fear what is unknown, and began to uncover what our ancestors had currently noticed and use the substantial capacity, in the beginning look, a little bizarre relationships, associated primarily with pathology. Medical cannabis, contrary to its name, does not imply fermented female inflorescences and leaves including psychoactive substances coiled in so-called “Joints”, however a beneficial oil without psychoactive THC. A standard individual, after taking dosages of medicinal cannabis and accomplishing the suitable state of cannabinoids in the blood, can delight in increased resistance, reduced susceptibility to cancer, postponed aging and reduced danger of stroke or cardiovascular disease. CBD oil includes cannabidiol as a base ingredient and might contain just trace quantities of tetrahydroxycannabidiol (THC). RSO oil has a low CBD content, while high THC. Both cannabis oil type CBD and RSO also contain other cannabinoids, such as cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG). CBD medical cannabis oil is a rather advantageous mix of cannabinoids, created to protect against 21st century disease. Oil of marijuana in a kind of hobby APR contains little amounts of CBD, stabilized by the existence of THC.
