Mrs Charlotte Lilly Baidoo (R) and host Afia Pokua

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Women’s World Bank, Ghana, Mrs Charlotte Lilly Baidoo has cautioned men to desist from the practice of demanding sex from ladies before offering them the needed job opportunities.

Speaking in an exclusive interview on the Vim Talk TV, Mrs Baidoo insisted that men in positions of authority should exercise their power with caution without taking advantage of the vulnerabilities of young women.

She
told host Afia Pokua: “I will caution men to stop demanding sex from women
before they offer them the needed job opportunities. They have to understand
that it is God who placed them where they are, so the men should stop demanding
sex from young women.”

The issue of trading sex for jobs has been a major bane in the effort to empower women, especially in Ghana.

Mrs Baidoo advised young women to remain resolute and not give in to these sexual demands. She encouraged them to be resourceful by beginning their own small enterprises.

“Waiting is the problem. We do not have the patience to wait. To the young ladies, I will advise them not to be frustrated or give in. Do not become a ‘slay queen’ when you do not have a dime. Humble yourself, even if you have to start small by selling pure water do it. It will multiply after a week or two,” she advised.
