Adjoa Safo calls for second look at sexual harassment in Ghana

Deputy Majority Leader and Member of Parliament for Dome/Kwabenya, Sarah Adjoa Safo, is advocating for a second look at what constitute sexual harassment in Ghana.

According to the Dome/Kwabenya lawmaker, Ghana needs to tackle the issue of sexual harassment through legislation and regulations and the issue should not be only restricted to the, sexual expose revealed on Legon campus. 

She further pointed out that women leaders in Ghana and the Women caucus in Parliament view the sex for grade expose investigation by the British Broadcasting Cooperation (BBC) investigation team, with the two lecturers involve as disappointing.
The Dome/Kwabenya lawmaker made this remarks on Friday 11th October, 2019 when she marked International Girls Day which brought together female students from Legon, GIMPA, UPSA, Wisconsin Universities and Dome Community Day Senior School to his office.  

Deputy Health Minister Tina Mensah, Deputy Works and Housing Minister Barbara Asher Ayisi and their mail counterpart George Mireku Duker were around to share their experience with the students and encourage them to aim higher. 

She further called for imbibing in the younger girls the spirit of serve- help to shape the vision and goals of the younger female leaders as to what they want to be, and not necessarily political leaders.

She said the motivation in bringing the girls together was to ensure they do not only see her on television as Deputy Majority Leader but, “I should have interaction with them so that they see leadership as something achievable not a myth; again you tell them your struggles and challenges”, she stated.
