In celebrating this year’s International Women’s Day, some men wore the shoes of their wives to show solidarity for women in the society.
The men who trekked through some streets in Ado Ekiti attracted members of the public who were stunned to surprise.
The theme of the 2020 International Women’s Day is, “Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”. the men called for better policies and programmes to empower women and protect them against discrimination.
Two of them, Mr Anthony Adesua and Mr Olaniyi Awogbami called on government to continue to create enabling platform for women to strive in their chosen careers.
Mr Adesua and Mr Awogbami explained that women should be adequately catered for and express dissatisfaction with how some men often beat their wives.
While addressing members of the public on the need to do away with Gender Based Violence, Mrs Tuminu Adedeji and Miss Similoluwa Awe said men needed to put themselves in the position of women, saying this would allow them to treat them carefully.
