Jumia recognizes the social, economic, cultural and political achievements women have contributed to and wish to reiterate on this special occasion our commitment to gender parity. Learn how Jumia promotes gender parity both internally and in Nigerian communities.


  1. I am a woman. What is your super power?
  2. Women, like men should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others.
  3. The only limitation to your goals exist in your mind
  4. Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
  5. Here's to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them
  6. A woman can be whoever she wants to be and stand for what she wants.
  7. Smile always, shine bright, you are beautiful
  8. No struggle can ever succeed without women participating side by side with men
  9. Men, their rights and nothing more; women their rights and nothing less
  10. In our society, the women who break down barriers are those who ignore limits
