EVERYONE needs to celebrate and acknowledge the immense contribution that women made and will continue to make within our  societies.

These were the views shared by senior academic at the Fiji National University’s Associate Professor Food Science Dr Jimaima Lako.

She said women have made sacrifices towards social , academic, economic and political development both at local and international levels.

“The global campaign theme #BalanceforBetter is fitting because for me personally, it means encouraging gender balance in science and engineering,” Dr Lako said.

“During International Women’s Day on Friday (March 8), I will be dedicating the day to my late mother who was my role model and mentor.”
