Marie Therese Abena Ondoa believes that women play a priority role in ensuring global security and achieving sustainable development. According to the speaker, women have the ability to resolve conflicts by means of soft power, without controversy and aggression. They approach the problems of people around sensitively, with sincere non-indifference, and always strive to help.
The speaker met a number of people from different countries at the Second Eurasian Women’s Forum.
“I realised that women worldwide face same challenges and address similar problems. That is why it is necessary to ensure that they exchange experience and unite their efforts. Then their activities will become even more productive”, said Marie Therese Abena Ondoa.
She highlighted that it was important for her to know more about the experience of other countries and to join the implementation of international projects that would help support women in Cameroon.
Marie Therese Abena Ondoa believes that today it is necessary to provide women with opportunity to occupy senior posts and leadership positions. It is important to speak more loudly and more often about successful women. According to the Minister, they must become role models and inspire people around by what they are doing. “It is important for women to not only develop and fulfil their potential but also show the rising generation, particularly girls, that everything is possible for them”, she said.
