Male or female, everyone has challenges that face them in life. However, there are certain challenges women encounter in their lives that are different from men. I am the sort of person that believes women are a force to be reckoned with. So, whenever I have these kinds of conversations with my friends, I tend to tell them to go after what they want regardless of the hurdles they may face. I also try to apply that advice for myself.


All over the world, the wage gap between men and women has become a point of debate. In many countries, men and women are not compensated equally for working in the same positions, to varying degrees in different areas. In Ethiopia, women make around 63 cents for every birr earned by men. There are also issues with being able to access equal employment opportunities, as EBR’s Ashenafi Endale found.
