Empowering Women: A visit from An NGO

The leaders of tomorrow are made; they are never born. Nearly 60% of the Lebanese generation is women. Thus, it would be so unreasonable that 60 percent of women are passive citizens whose voice can’t be heard in leadership positions. In the twenty first century, it is no more acceptable that women wear the dresses and use their beauty to succeed. Houssam Eddine Hariri High School future women see their roles in a more challenging manner. Our female students, the mothers of tomorrow and the leaders of tomorrow need to appreciate their gender. Also, our male students, the fathers of tomorrow have to allow and encourage female participation in important social positions for together they can create the change we are looking forward to. Due to our believe that our students are those future leaders, in women’s day, we hosted a women’s non-governmental organization that is concerned with empowering women and encouraging them to be involved in the political and social life in Lebanon. The Democratic Women’s Association presented by Ms. Bana Al Samra visited grade eight classes in the middle school and had a very interactive discussion with the students about their notion of female leaders where she focused on the eccentric role that women can play in the social life to create a difference. She also tackled the achievements this organization has made concerning helping women who need jobs and working on initiating laws that allow females to pass citizenship to their children. She said that a lot has been achieved, yet a lot still needs to be done. It is this generation that is capable of continuing the path and the struggle. Through high education, morals, and ambition our female students can and will be the new blood that pumps life in our dead societies. Our young male students are also the open-minded generation that accepts collaboration and believes that one hand can never clap on its own.
