Women in Liberia were opportune to have Her Excellency Madam Michelle Bachelet, Executive Director of UN Women to come to Liberia to celebrate with us The 100 anniversary of International Women’s Day; and the first anniversary of UN Women Day. She was the guest of our President, Her Excellency Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first female president of Liberia and in Africa. Women from 75 women organizations paraded in the streets of Monrovia and had an indoor program. During the program, Madam Bachelet spoke on the Theme: Access to Education, Training, Science and Technology: “Pathway to Decent Work for Women”. That evening, a dinner was hosted by the Minister of Gender and Development in honor of Madam Bachelet and Our President, Her Excellency Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Presidents of various women organizations were invited to attend the dinner. We had such a wonderful time with our guest.
I hope you all had a wonderful celebration like we did in Liberia.
