The global Women's Day is a big annual event all over Cameroon.
Many women in all big cities attend organized marches in the streets to advocate for gender equality and show support against violence against women and children.
Employers donate textiles in the colours decided by the government every year. Each lady then decides her design for the dress – and many make them themselves.
It is beautiful, it is colourful and it is “for the real world”.
It is a tradition that women only work till lunch time. At MSC Cameroon we celebrated the day by serving lunch for all our female colleagues.
