DRC Head Nudges Liberian Women To Unite On Violence

By John Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, March 17 (LINA) - The head of operations of the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), Madam Shenne Jensen, has called on Liberian women to unite in addressing challenges facing them.

She cited domestic violence and participation in decision-making as challenges faced by women all over the world, noting that it requires their concerted efforts to address these challenges.

Madam Jensen, who arrived in the country by road from the Ivory Coast, made the call in Yookudi Town in Maryland County during a program marking International Women’s Day, according to the Liberia News Agency.

The program was held under the theme: “Equality for Women is Progress For All,” and was jointly organized by the Ministry of Gender and Development and the Danish Refugee Council.

The DRC envoy, who is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, then commended the women of Maryland County for their hard work, and urged them to get actively involved in the development of their respective communities.

Earlier, DRC Country Director, Madam Marqine Villeneave, told women of Maryland County to take the destiny of their county into their hands through unity and hard work.
