      My country is successful because it has come up with posts in the government that represent both male and female rights.The post that represent women is led by a woman while the post that represent men is led by a man.
      I am proud of this because these leaders have made sure that both genders have equal rights in the society.

    My country is not a very advanced country, but there is something I love, which is that our jobs are not based on prejudice, and there is work for women before men, as a person, whether male or female, has his voice and his opinion.

    My country is successful because we produced the first female director general of the world trade organization Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and I am proud of this because this shows that when women are given more opportunities to participate in building the economy, it gives rise to benefits, helps to reduce stereotyping and gives hope to others.

    My country is successful because of its preservation of cultural heritage, on thing Africa is good at is preserving cultural heritage we do things like the Calabar carnival which takes place in December. We attract a lot of tourists yearly, in 2018 Nigeria attracted over 13,000 tourist. I am proud of this because a lot of country's are starting to forget their cultural background or start calling it "old fashion" but not Africa and Nigeria so I am very proud of this achievement

    One of the things am proud of my country for was introducing the National Poverty Eradication Programme in the year 2001 and it was introduced by retired General Obasanjo. This is a great achievement because both men and women are involved in this programme and both men and women are given equal opportunities. This has reduced poverty in Nigeria and it reduced the rate of gender bias.

    In the past years women were discriminated in my country especially in politics, but the problem was solved when we realised that ending gender discrimination against women is a basic right. It is crucial for a sustainable future; which has proven that empowering women and girls helps economic growth and development.That is why I am proud of my country.

    My country is successful because the people are intelligent, hard-working and are known for their “can-do” and “never-say-never” attitude, which is complimented with a friendly and accommodating spirit. Nigeria is a multinational state, as it is inhabited by over 250 ethnic groupings, of which the three largest are the Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba. Together, these ethnic groups speak over 500 different languages, have diverse cultures, and exhibit unique art. A rich array of cuisines, fashion styles and festival exist across different tribes. For example, the 'Argungu Fish Festival', "New Yam Festival' and so much more.

    In the area where I live women have their rights respected, if a woman is disrespected by any man both men and women come and stand for her. When I was little all the community heads were males but as time passed the women went for a protest and their voices were heard and now females are part of the elections and meetings.
    Also in my community jobs were only given to males but now they have built shops that women can use to start-up businesses.

    My country is successful because of how diverse our cultures and traditions are. I am proud of our cultural diversity because it shows our resilience, our level of humor portrayed in the film industry (the second largest in the world). I love our flamboyant weddings, our ability to adapt and stick together as a nation in spite of the difficult circumstances, our affluent arts and culture and above all our ability to love and be happy; I cannot wish for any thing more except that we continue to live in agreement and harmony.

    Not everyone in my country can read and write. This fact has made us victims of scorn and ill treatment from other countries. Nevertheless, this same country has been able to produce a female writer who has helped prove to those other countries that Nigeria is not backward like they see her to be. This female writer is none other than Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

    The city I live is very populated, with millions of people living in it. Because of this, lots of people need to move around the city to get to school or work, and my city has tackled this problem very successfully by creating one the most efficient public transport networks in the world. Bus and train stops are spread out evenly and the vehicles arrive at just the right time for everyone to travel around the city safely. This impacts me because without a good transportation system it would be harder and longer for me to get to school on time.

    Although the state is an occupied country, this did not stop as an obstacle to the achievements in Palestine.
    Teacher Hanan Al-Hroub was awarded the best teacher award in the world in 2016. This teacher came to be a glimmer of hope in the Palestinian education sector, because education in Palestine faced obstacles and challenges, most notably the occupation.
    Hanan Al-Hroub got married at the age of 18 to fulfill her father’s desire after he prevented her from completing her education, but after 12 years she decided to start realizing her dream, which is to complete her education, as the main reason was to restore her hope and her desire to complete her education and teach the basic stage, especially her children.
    After she put a game corner (created by herself) and imitate it.Especially for her children, she noticed the positive results of that. At first, she worked to spread this among the rest of the neighborhood’s children, until her house remained a distinctive sign in the neighborhood, which the neighbors presented and imitated.
    After fulfilling her dream, starting the journey of the teaching profession for the primary stage, she wrote her own curriculum "Play and Learn" that contains educational games.
    This teacher received the Medal of Culture and Science at the level of creativity in Palestine, she is the honorary sponsor of the British Friendship Organization, one of the jury of the Arab Reading Challenge
    This is one of many Palestinian achievements.

    I think all girls should hear the words, a girl is human, and every human has rights, we must demand these rights, as a girl, you must claim your rights, you have to show your role in society, your importance, your position, and everything.
    So, how would society be if you did not demand these rights ?
    Being a weak and submissive , affects the family and children, and the refore the whole, it will be a submissive society, these words are important, becous ; your role as a woman is very important in society, it will be strong with your strength, and weakened by your weakness, you are half of the society, and the first parameter, and the men's factory.

    My country is successful because we make women see how significant they are in the country, show them that without them we won't be able to have a better understanding of the social structure.
    We also expose our women to platforms with equal opportunities and also encourage them to pursue their aspirations.
    And lastly, we are successful because we educate women in rural areas and later make them employable in both private and government organizations.

    Based on on info from Statista, Nigeria is among the countries with the highest literacy rate in West Africa. This is a great achievement because education is one of the areas where women face the most inequality and in many countries, the education of the female child seems like an insurmountable task. Along side the fact that the literacy rate of Nigeria is one of the highest in West Africa, steady progress is being made to continuously empower the Nigerian female and this reflects in achievements such as the appointment of Dr. Ngozi Iweala as the director general of the World Trade Organization.

    My country is successful because it has some of the world's greatest writers such as Wole Soyinka, who was the first African to be awarded the Noble prize for Literature, Chinua Achebe, Femi Osofisan and many more. A book like Half of a yellow sun has educated fellow Nigerians on the dangers of war, conflict and separation caused by political struggle. This book, written by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has inculcated moral responsibility in the minds of citizens and encouraged us to avoid political violence in Nigeria.

The new law endorses that no man nor woman can marry unless they obtain a marriage license after completing an educational course in which they learn their rights and obligations according to the Palestinian law and the Islamic instructions . This Kind of courses will enhance women's awareness of their rights, therefore, they will be able to accomplish the best in their lives,

    Palestine is an occupied country, but this does not prevent it from being a successful country.
    Our country is successful because we have many successful people inside and outside the country, for example: Ahmed Sajeda, Ahmed is a student at Birzeit University, his arm was amputated during the confrontations against the Israeli occupation, but he did not give up, and after less than two years, he challenged the occupation with his friends, and they left an arm A prosthetic that performs some of the functions of a natural arm.
    I am proud of that because he did not succumb to the occupation.

    I will talk about the national dialogue on Women, Peace and security.
    Gaza worked with with GUPW (general union of Palestinian women) with support from the government of norway. And they held annual of the "open day" in order to celebrate of 21th anniversary of UN security resolution 1325, and the event involved a lot of women (including young ones) from all over Palestine, to talk about gender equality, give different ideas, opinions and preservatives. And to talk about struggles that face them as supporters of gender equality, which was a rare event for them to meet.
    That led to Palestine committments to further WPS (women, peace and security) agenda, and it was the second arab state to adopt a NAP (national action plan) in 2016, and it also adopted it second NPA on the end of 2020.
    So women and girls got the chance to be a part of building peace and security in their society.

    My country is successful because it has survived as a union intact is a miracle. Ever since Africa was carved up and the British claimed the Niger Area (Nigeria), the country has never been homogeneous. It is made up of myriad people who have a huge variety of cultures and languages. There is no such thing as Nigerian culture. Instead the Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Nupe, Efik, Fulani etc all have their traditional ways of doing things.
    Our people make me proud: the resilience, creativity, hard work and spirit of enterprise demonstrating time and time again that they can excel in spite of our difficult operational environment. The Nigerian spirit is like no other.

    Palestine is considered one of the most educated and least illiterate countries, and this in itself is an achievement under difficult circumstances. The Palestinians are always keen on raising their sons and daughters and raising a conscious generation... I will give you interesting examples Hiba Al-Shorfa, a Palestinian girl from Gaza with Down syndrome, and now she has become an assistant teacher.. I think she is a really great example, and this is proof that education in Palestine is not limited to anyone. Education for All... Another example of Palestinian achievements is Munir Nayfeh, a Palestinian atomic scientist and physicist, who is considered one of the most prominent nanoscientists. He has dozens of registered inventions in the United States, won many prestigious scientific awards, published more than 180 scientific articles and papers, and co-authored several books.....These were just a few examples and I'm sure there are many of them even if there are a bunch of issues, there is always a positive side.

    My district is already successful because when I go to the UNRWA clinic, everyone stands in line for women and queue for men to get medical service, but what reinforces the inequality is that the employee applies equality between men and women equally, by allowing a man to receive treatment from the men's queue and then a woman to receive service from the women's queue Without discrimination between the sexes, thus everyone gets the medical service without prejudice, and it addresses the problem of the long wait to get treatment, and it has reduced the conflict between the sexes over roles, which makes me feel proud, justice and dignity and guarantee the right to treatment and impartiality and injustice, that is the highest image I live in equality and feeling Especially humanity

She was great at making pottery, this she started as a child as an apprentice to her aunt. She came into limelight when Michael Cardrew noticed her pottery and invited her to joined the Abuja Training Center where she became the first female potter. Her works were featured in many international exhibitions and galleries, she also gave demonstrations in different art exhibition centers and colleges in different countries. She received national and international awards, her face can be seen in one of our country's currencies. I am proud of this because she beat the odd and did not let her gender deter her from achieving greatness despite lacking a formal education.

    My state has become a major development in the subject of equality and prejudice, where women in Palestine have become expressing their opinion and fighting injustice and inequality.
    Many women have opened institutions to support women and their rights, and institutions that help women if they are subjected to violence, injustice, or inequality, and also many men understand the situation and contribute to supporting, Now in Palestine, women are free, not like before, and I am very proud to be a Palestinian living in Palestine, and I hope that there will be a bigger and bigger development, our state depends on us..

    My country is successful because there are a lot of males and females in Gaza work in
    private sector , but only a quarter of these businesses are owned by women . Few opportunities for women to participate in the labor force exist, either through corporate employment or entrepreneurship. Although 65 percent of Palestinian women have expressed a desire to launch a business, only 15 percent have done so (. In response to these challenges, A program was lead partnered with Bank of Palestine (BOP) to launch the
    Felestineya Mini-MBA program and I am really proud to have such creative ideas for women to have more places in these places.

    My country is successful with such success stories in Gaza City. First we all know that women in Gaza tend to receive a poorer quality of education. The dropout rate for high school students (though still low at less than 3 percent) has risen recently, with girls being slightly more likely than boys to leave school early.
    Despite these challenges, girls’ education in Palestine continues to progress. Girls are equally represented in STEM alongside boys and their presence in universities continues to grow. The main challenges to female education in the region are political and cultural. While it may be unrealistic to expect a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian land conflict any time soon, attitudes about women are already changing.
    Well what makes me proud of my city is that there is One group of 40 Palestinian girls attending Sokaina Girls School in the Gaza Strip decided to challenge social norms about women’s role by building a library for their school. With support from UNICEF and other NGOs, they were able to bring a new world of learning and hope to a community where libraries are scarce.

    For most of my life, I have been living in China, and during these years here I have seen it develop and grow. I think the biggest change is the fact that baby girls are now accepted much more, previously if parents found out that their first child was going to be a girl, it was likely that the baby would be killed almost instantly (which I think is very sad, due to the simple fact that it is still happening all over the world) Now China restricts parents from knowing the gender before birth, I think this highly helped the GBSS in the country, allowing baby girls to have a chance in a world that wouldn’t have wanted them (I wish all the girls out there a wonderful life, make sure to always persuade what you want also if others try to hold you down).

    In my locality, there had been records of several car accidents especially at night due to the lack of street lights in the area and this has been a very great issue. A lot of people have lost their lives, both the rich and the poor in the area. Thanks to the intervention of a group of individuals in the area, street lights have been made available through the contribution of both the men and women in the area which has helped to greatly tackle this issue and save a lot of lives and reduce property damage.

    In Nigeria, there is a certain level of gender equality in our nation that makes me proud as we are still a developing country trying to catch up with the fast-paced world. People like Osasu Igbinedion is a female rights activities who puts a lot of effort in organizing the Osasu Show to bring about awareness on gender inequality. This show has informed so many people about their rights and is beginning to help Nigerians adjust to the fact that gender roles are outdated

    In my country the situation is different because there are special circumstances for it. However, in my country, gender equality is applied, but of course in every society there is a group that has strange views and I would like to know the reason for their strange vision????

    Lately, the Al-Maghazi camp municipality launched a campaign to empower women.

    The campaign called for increasing women's representation in the ‏municipal councils. I am proud of my camp and my homeland for doing their best to empower women.
    Is there a special day in your country for celebrating International Women’s Day?

    One of the difficulties in my country is that the number of educated men in my country is more than that of the women and thereby gives men the upper hand of getting jobs. Women are more than one and a half times more likely to live in poverty than men in the same age bracket. So, my country has been organizing workshops, seminars, and symposiums to help women acquire skills that would help them to be employed in different businesses and even become entrepreneurs. This has helped the uneducated women to get money and this also has proved the theory right which is, "Formal education would make you a living, Self-education, and your skills would make you a fortune".

    I live in a rural area. Several years ago, the parents separated between males and females, so they did not take them out of the houses. They stayed to work at home and did not go to education. Only males are allowed, but life began to develop and progress, and intellectual and cultural awareness began to advance, and the girl began to teach and work, and began to work as a teacher and a doctor. Being equal with males, taking justice and eating what you deserve, and this in itself is the biggest achievement and progress that happened to my village.
