Dr. Oby, 51% women and girls of Africa need to start thinking and acting equal before the world will take us serious. It is great that the World bank is jump starting this and can do more for us women folk by organizing motivational programs in this line along side the benefits of a better world of "raising productivity, improving learning and nutritional outcomes for children, making institutions more representative and advance development prospects for all" as you mentioned. If women dont think and Act equal no one will do it for us. I'm an African woman thinking and acting equal everywhere i go. I make a demand of that equal treatment by putting in more effort than any man my age will.
