Congratulating the entire women of honour today on the occasion of this year’s World Women’s Day.
We are proud of you for the great impacts made in our fragile world and we pray that May the good Lord continue to energise and uphold you so you can do more to alter the injustices against many women across the world.
Of great concern is the issue of minor marriages which sell our little women into forced marriage against their will. We implore our women to stand against this unholy act and do more to effect changes across the world.
We also advocate for more political participation by Women across the world so that womenfolk can create a better and more formidable forum to fight those injustices prevailing against women across the world.
Our women have always been at the receiving end in the time war. More should be done to alleviate their conditions, especially state of minds during war eras.
We salute your courage today and we wish you more celebrations ahead.
We appreciate your love, affection, compassion and passion for us as our life makers and motivators. We appreciate the joy you bring and the consoles in terms of trials.
We love you
Long live World women, Long live World Women’s Day.
2011 year marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. The day was commemorated for the first time on 19 March 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, following its establishment during the Socialist International meeting the prior year. More than one million women and men attended rallies on that first commemoration.
In 1975, during International Women’s Year, the United Nations began celebrating 8 March as International Women’s Day. Two years later, in December 1977, the General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by Member States, in accordance with their historical and national traditions. The Day is traditionally marked with a message from the Secretary-General.
