The international women's day, though taken to be a day to celebrate the special women in each one's life, it's a day to reflect deeply on the social, economical and political inequalities perpetuated on women by the society through ages and times.
The day is celebrated annually, globally. We hold the celebrations annually with men, women, boys and girls. We reflect the struggle of girls and women that have undergone FGM and sensitize people on the effects of FGM. Through walks, plays and talks we let people know that FGM is illegal and should not not be practiced.
We wish to join the rest of Kenyans in condemning the barbaric act of terrorism that happened yesterday at the Dusit 2 Complex in Nairobi. We also wish to convey our condolences to the families that have lost their loved ones and quick recovery to the injured.
