The head of State wrote on his Twitter account, ‘Throughout history, women have played a vital role in the struggle to eradicate all forms of violence. On this day, we acknowledge the wisdom, firmness and spirit of solidarity that guides them in the search for peace for humanity. Sisters, receive all my support!’
Every May 24, the International Women’s Day for Peace and Disarmament is celebrated to promote a more peaceful world without the presence of weapons that threaten the welfare of human beings.
According to United Nations Women, when women take on leadership and participate in peace processes, a more lasting peace is achieved.
Since 1982, the date has been marked to remember the activism of women peacemakers on a global scale and to highlight their capacity for initiatives and participation in discussions related to peace and disarmament.
