International Women’s Day 2015

The 8th March is widely known as International women’s day. It’s a day in which the greater strength and will of women around the world are remember and honoured to ensure that the wider society takes note and learns from them. As women in Somalia are over 60% of the entire population, it is therefore even more vital to honour their contribution to the betterment and forwardness of the nation as a whole. Women in Somalia who for over two decades have faced hardships and struggles to survive a war torn nation have also been the ones to succumb to violence and injustices. They have had their will and rights taken from them and in majority of cases find themselves being ostracised from their own communities. The same communities they have worked so hard to protect and feed is the one that blocks their path to positive changes.
