Women Empowered

Event celebrating International Women’s Day in the village of Sinje, in the Grand Cape Mount county near the Sierra Leonean border. Speakers at the event, from the government and local NGOs, emphasized the need for upholding women’s rights in Liberia. Rape and other forms of violence against women are widespread in the country and often go unpunished. Many women at the event wore hats with texts against gender based violence such as seen here "Raise a Family not a Fist". The event was also attended by women from the Nambian UN Peacekeeping contingent.
