Mrs Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, founding President of GOWA at a ceremony to unveil the nominees on September 28, 2018, indicated that, women play vital roles in the socio-economic setting of the country, yet society has failed to recognise their efforts.

She said GOWA has a strong conviction that the time has come for women to be accorded the honour they deserve, so to serve as an encouragement for other women to impact more positively in the society.
