Kujamac I can't resist addressing the question "what does women's day mean to you?"

In my community, women's day means buying a fabric to stitch a fashionable "kaba", female groups contributing huge sums of money to buy food and drinks for themselves on that day, drinking and getting drunk, having sexual escapades, and many more.

Very few female groups try to carry out activities which empower women. The way it is celebrated instead upholds class distinction and the rural women who should be the focus have nothing to benefit

I will like to say it's for this reason that I have decided, for a change , this year I will be sensitising and collecting pads for rural girls in my community. I hope to create awareness among women on the great part they have to play in empowering, caring and building true sisterhood

Great move Masalien's at daring to be different.Actually the world needs women like you who stands as point of light to others. Yes of course I have seen videos and pictures of some women in Caméroon celebrating women's day. However, I think ignorant plays a big role in how they celebrate. With women like you at the grassroot coming up with such educative and empowering projects, many women will come to learn and understand the true meaning of women's day.sensitization can never be underestimated. So keep sensitizing and with baby steps we shall get there. Bravo on all the great strides so far. Kuja.
