International Women’s Day 2016
International Women’s Day 2016 Address
To all my Fellow Sisters from Niger, Africa, and the World,
International Women’s Day is being celebrated today across the globe to highlight the achievements of women.
On behalf of the staff of the Embassy of the Republic of Niger in Washington D.C, and on my own behalf, I extend to you my warmest greetings and best wishes.
I would also like to thank each one of you for your contributions to the advancement of women in our nations and for being the architects of our society.
Let this day be a day of celebration, but also one of remembrance of the plight of so many of our sisters in Niger, Africa and around the globe.
We have a collective duty to step in and build momentum so that we can one day achieve gender equality for all.
Professor Hassana Alidou
Ambassador of the Republic of Niger
