Prime ministry Abiy Ahmed, and other high government officials invited guests have attended the ceremony held today morning.

Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed called upon Ethiopian heroines to cross artificial divides in working to build the country’s peace and unity.

Dr. Abiy emphasized that women are the pillars of the nation and the least recognized for their sacrifices and giving.

International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

The history goes back to the second half of the 19th century. Many many decades after the American Revolution ( it is also referred to as the American War of Independence), the Status of women in the United States lacked essentially all forms of freedom.

Women were not assuming role and positions in society and were restricted to domestic work. Those who worked mostly had jobs in the manufacturing sector. On March 8, 1957, women working in factories in New York staged a strike to protest poor working conditions including long working hours and low payment. That is how the struggle for the equality and freedom of women started. In a little less than a decade, there was already a resolution on Women’s professional work.
