Nana Konadu Agyeman RawlingsStatement by Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, President of the 31st December Women’s Movement on rumours making the rounds that the Movement has closed its operations

The leadership of the 31st December Women’s Movement (DWM) has learnt with shock and surprise false information being spread to its membership that the movement has been shut down because its President is now a national executive member of the NDC.

These reports are untrue and clear machinations by those who fail to appreciate the unique role the DWM has played and continues to play in the socioeconomic development of women and children in Ghana. They are anti-women, not gender sensitive and have long worked against the progress of the movement.

Competent members drawn from the length and breadth of the country handle the affairs of the DWM and we have a strong national executive and management structure that is still in place and operating on a permanent basis.

Our role in developing the worth of Ghanaian womanhood through education, introduction to business skills and campaigning for protective legislation is an ongoing process and the DWM will not waver in that regard.

All members and sympathisers of the movement are to remain resolute and ignore false rumours making the rounds.

As President of the movement I will continue to exert my energies to the objectives of the DWM and ask all members and sympathisers to do the same.
