The Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Opare, has appealed to the Ghana Armed Forces to create a special desk for female personnel to help address their concerns.

She said an exclusive desk to look at female-related issues in the military will enhance their performance as well as influence policies that would remove barriers in female recruitment and advancement.

Mrs Osei Opare made this appeal at a historic All-Female Parade held at the Abugah Square, of the Armoured Reconnaissance (RECCE) Regiment, as part of a week-long celebration of 60 Years of Female Participation in Ghana’s military.

Mrs Osei Opare said government is willing to offer the needed support to ensure gender parity in the military.

She said women are becoming aware of the need to join and remain in mainstream decision-making and play lead executive roles.

She said, women’s actions must not be perceived to be competing for dominance, but rather as a compliment to their male counterparts.

Mrs Opare  said, government would continue to support the Ghana Armed Forces to attain the UN recommended female quota in Peace Support Operations.

The Parade had 22 officers and 203 soldiers drawn from the Army, Navy and Air Force.  Awards were presented to retired and serving female military personnel who distinguished themselves in various areas.
