Celebrating International Women's Day in Kano

DAG carried out a one-day advocacy visit to the Emir of Kano State with about 30 people made up of members from the Kano state platform and Purple brand ambassadors.

Part of their demand was for the Emir to lead the process of critical stakeholders such as the Commissioner for Women Affairs, other relevant members of the Kano State Executive Council, relevant legislators in charge of women affairs in the Kano State House of Assembly, to make room for stronger legal frameworks for girls and women; participation in the development of the Kano State Gender Policy.

After the advocacy visit, about 100 people met at the venue of the press conference where they addressed the public on the response from the Emir.
