Some days ago, the Council of Legal Education released the result of the Bar Final Examination and for the first time in the history of the Nigerian Law School, over 160 students finished with a first class degree.
This is quite applauding for the students as the Nigerian Law School is known to graduate very few first class students over the years.
Interestingly, @SansHubris tweeted that, out of the 160 first class graduates, 113 were women, noting that, ” The future is female.”
Responding to his tweet, Ibukun Awosika said that the future is both. According to her, we may be making a mistake by emphasizing on one gender over the other.
I truly hope the future is both. We don’t want to make the same mistake by just flipping the gender. We truly need both male and female working together to create a world that works for all of us. https://t.co/inPEvNf7IR

Because of the many years of discrimination against women and girls, the world is drawing more attention to females, fighting for them and creating opportunities for them to excel. While this is great, we should not forget that that true equality includes both sexes.
