Today, we celebrate International Women’s Day and we reflect the progress made on gender equality and women empowerment. At the same time it unites us as Women regardless of religion, ethnicity or skin colour. Women can make a difference and for Ethiopia, women should use that strength and stand up as leaders to unite us as a nation and to bring peace for our beautiful country.
As Dr. Abey, the Ethiopian Prime Minister, said today during his speech at the AU: there is a leading role for women in the transformation of our country.
Let’s take the assignment as Ethiopian women and make peace our responsibility.
