River Cess Women Gown Ellen

MONROVIA, May 11 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has thanked the women of River Cess County for gowning her and promised them food-processing equipment to ease the burden of manually pounding rice and other crops.

The women of River Cess said the honoring and gowning of President Sirleaf was a result of giving them voice, including financial and political independence.

They praised President Sirleaf for taking women from the back to the front of society, making them decision-makers in government and in the home.

Speaking on behalf of the women, Madam Julia Sando thanked President Sirleaf for lifting and promoting women's issues.
