March 8 beckons us again and we shall once again rise to this momentous occasion. It is our pleasure to invite you for the Observation of International Women’s Day 2013 on 8th March 2013. The global theme of this year as announced by the United Nations Organisation (UNO) is “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women”. Keeping this UN theme as the background for our activities, we have collectively decided on work on “The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum” for the observation in Imphal. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
Four organizations namely Centre for Organisation Research and Education(CORE), Forum for Indigenous Perspectives and Action(FIPA), Community Network Empowerment(CONE) and All Manipur Nupi Manbi Association(AMANA) shall be organising the event jointly, and we are getting more partners as we write this letter and the final list shall be communicated to you.
The programme is a composite event which will revolve around Indigenous women and their status in the society. The programme will be marked by songs and other art forms including a quiz with surprise gifts on HIV/AIDS and women related issues. Each item will elucidate and consolidate the momentum gained by women in the various struggles in terms of policy and programme.
A special contemporary dance recital on the theme of women will also be showcased.
We hope that you will join us.
