We must confront and dismantle all the barriers that continue to hold women back from getting their opportunities. Let’s pledge to amplify the voices of women, advocate for their rights and create inclusive spaces for them to thrive,” she said as she spoke of shattering glass ceilings and the power of persistence.

Hearts unleashed with singing and dancing. The stage vibrated with rhythm as the DJ Team belted out soulful melodies. The voices echoed tales of love, loss and resilience. When the beats quickened, the ladies danced, their inhibitions cast aside.

As the clock struck midnight, the Ladies Night drew to a close, but the memories lingered. The women who wore many hats had shed them all for a few hours, let their hair down, quite literally, and reveled in their shared sisterhood.
