Violence against women and girls over the years has been a menace that keeps getting the attention of civil societies and rights organizations but the numbers still keep rising.

I have always wondered why it is so, because any social vice that has enormous voice against it either reduces or is curbed to the barest minimum. Over the years violence against women and girls and if I want to extend it children has taken diverse forms all over the world not excluding my beloved country Ghana. I guess the need to further make all the nose to bring to bare the facts and effects it has on society is far overdue hence my decision to blog on this issue to add my voice to the issue at hand.

I won't really speak much but will demonstrate by posting some quotes of people we respect in every endeavour of our lives and in society and some photos to share my displeasure of those who perpetrate such acts to women and girls as well as children in the society.
We must unite. Violence against women cannot be tolerated, in any form, in any context, in any circumstance, by any political leader or by any government.
-- Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

Men must teach each other that real men do not violate or oppress women – and that a woman’s place is not just in the home or the field, but in schools and offices and boardrooms.
-- Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

All forms of violence against women must stop – from the use of rape as a weapon of war to the use of violence by a husband to terrorize his wife within her own home. - Deputy Secretary-General UN Asha-Rose Migiro

It is not enough for women to speak out on the issue, for the message to be strong and consistent, women's voices must be backed by men's - Rep. John Conyers

The first thing which comes to mind when I hear "Violence against Women" is injustice, cruelty and an act which will destroy generations. It hurts me badly. To me it's brutality, butchery and barberry against one of the creations of God. - Syed Mahmood Kazmi

Far too many women in our communities, neighbourhoods, towns villages and cities around the world suffer from various forms of violence and everyone should stand up and unite against it.

I am opting out to stand Up and add my voice against the act against humanity. I will want to use this opportunity to invite each and everyone to add his or her voice in putting an end to Violence against women in our society. 

Stand Up and Be Counted on Violence against Women !!!!!

Full Moon Launch - Wear Ghana Stands Out

It was all hyped on the launch of a brand name in the fashion fraternity here in Ghana.

The campaign was so much driven by social media and to my amazement on that day, it was spectacular the number of persons that turned up at the event at the African Regent Hotel for the launch of Wear Ghana and brainchild of a good friend Awura Abena Agyeman.

It all begun with a 15.11.13 campaign on #Facebook. This stunt in a way, if I may call it so, rose eyebrows especially from mates and colleagues I attended university with as well as other friends in my social circles. As some thought it was my day of getting married, others, thought I was travelling abroad, some also thought I was getting into a new employment. So the question was that, "Yo, what's up on 15.11.13?"

Well I enjoyed the suspense and the triggering of all that they thought was associated to this date....my response to them was "I will keep you posted and update you all when the time is near"

Fast-forward to my theme for this post, so after all the euphoria drawn around this date, it was time to reveal the 'Secret'.... it was the launch of a Brand name that I believe will rock the fashion industry in the coming years #WearGhana.

Now after everything as per the program of the launch had been completed, it was time to network, buy the designs on display, meet up with friends on all the various platform for which the program was advertised. People reconnected especially me, I happened to reconnect with a friend I had during my days as a National Service person at Hohoe Ghana Commercial Bank. He was at Barclays bank, I had not seen him after his wedding four years ago and it was a great occasion to met him once again. We re-lived our exploits on weekends, the fun times and everything that made our period as friends there a great one.

Well the hall way to and from the shop where most of the interactions went on was so packed that, the air-conditioned hallway was very hot and I begun sweating...yes everybody knows that I sweat profusely with the slightest heat. So I took a stroll out to stand in-front of the hotel to catch some fresh air.

Immediately I was out, I raised my head up, and a beautiful spectacle gripped my sight, it immediately dawned on me that 'Today is definitely the perfect day for Debbie ( as I affectionately call her) to launch her Brand'.

The rest is history and the day ended with lots of fun that will surely for a long time to come be remembered as a great day to be proud of.

So before I end this blog here is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) from Wear Ghana : Be sure to visit the Wear Ghana pop-up shop inside the African Regent Hotel from now till November 27th, 2013 to grab that special outfit for the upcoming festive season.
