Some communities still practice harmful beliefs which hinder women from public participation and leadership. We should end practices that demean women.

Marceline urged the media to provide interview platforms and cover successful events for women in order to boost their self-esteem.

“For women’s efforts to be acknowledged and supported, the media should play a major role in highlighting their achievements and covering their success stories”.
