Women in Cameroon joined their counterparts across the world on the 8th of March 2014 to commemorate the 27th edition of the International Women’s Day. Drawing inspiration from the theme of the year, the women called on the government, to improve on their status by ensuring that the MDG’s are achieved.
The 30th Day of September 2013 brought new hope for the women of Cameroon, creating a new record.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is marked on March 8 every year, and is considered to be an important and memorable day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women.
