A book titled ‘When Men Fell Asleep’ written by a Ghanaian female writer Josephine Adwoa Ashia Torku, a former Students Representative Council (SRC) leader at the University of Ghana has been launched in Accra.

The book encourages ladies and women in the Ghanaian society to take up leadership roles, and essentially covers the author’s struggle during her days at the University of Ghana when she was contesting for the SRC leadership position.

The launch attracted a number of personalities which include The Minister of Communications, Dr Omane Boamah, the Deputy Minister of Education, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Uncle Ebo Whyte, among others.

Ms Torku at the launch of the book noted that she fought against discrimination and stereotyping by her male counterparts ‘who felt that women should not be entrusted with leadership positions in our society.’

She urged Ghanaian women, who compete with men for leadership positions, to continue their fight.

Copies of the books, according to the writer, are now available at Accra, Kumasi and the Sunyani offices of the Challenge Bookshop, the office of Roverman Productions in Kokomlemle, Supreme Scan near Bishop Bowers at Larterbiokoshie and the porters lodge in Volta Hall.
