Munah Pelham Youngblood as untimely.

She indicated that females are not given equal political opportunities to harness their potentials and contribute to the growth and development of Liberia.
The Advocate mentioned that women’s political participation adds concrete value to the strength of any emerging democracy and as such, the December 8, 2020, Senatorial Election should give women such unique opportunity.
