Women congratulated on 8 March 2021 at US ambassy in Congo Republic.

Women working at the US Embassy in the Republic of Congo were congratulated on Tuesday 8 March, Women’s Rights Day. The embassy officials organized in their own way to do something for vulnerable women, especially young mothers who were given food.

If for some Congolese women the international day is significant and reminds them of the many efforts they make every day at work, for many this day has become « loincloth day » where women in loincloths parade through the streets of Brazzaville to celebrate with each other.

Congolese women must understand that this day of 8 March is a tribute to their efforts, their sacrifices, their daily struggles to feed themselves and their families, whether they are financially or as housewives.
