Last week in Kumasi, Ghana, Country Director for The Hunger Project-Ghana, Dr. Naana Agyemang-Mensah, facilitated a workshop for Ghanaian journalists designed to promote women’s participation in local and national politics. Dr. Naana appealed to the journalists to use media to rally the nation to combat socio-economic, cultural and religious practices that marginalize women and keep them from taking part in government.
