Int’l Women’s Day Message 2013
TO ALL SICN MEMBERS
ON FRIDAY MARCH 8TH2013, WE CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY. WE ARE ASKED TO FOCUS ON PEACE AND ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN.
Let us do just that as we celebrate in our clubs and countries throughout the Caribbean and also throughout the world, but in so doing, we must acknowledge the fact that as we celebrate there are millions of women all over the world who are in different states of anguish due to the violence which is being meted out to them by “others”, who for whatever reason want to inflict pain and suffering to someone who may be vulnerable, and cannot fight back.
As a group of responsible and dedicated women, let us continue to speak out,let us continue to take the message to all who will listen –“End the violence against women now”
I urge you to pray for peace throughout the world, so that we can make our space so much more friendly, safe and inviting for our children and their children.
May god continue to guide and bless us all as we remember.
In sisterly love
Soroptimist International Caribbean Network
