A woman isn't important because she's a mother, daughter, sister or wife. She's important because she's a human being. As a society, we are far away from achieving equality for women. We have come a long way in many parts, but the value of women is still undermined and the mind of women still considered of lower caliber from that of a man. Here at SGH, we would like to challenge that, by reminding everyone on International Women's Day of the huge number of Female Doctors and Heads of Departments that we have, and they are some of the best doctors in the area. If you're a man, respect the women in your life, and if you're a woman, never underestimate your value or sell yourself short.
