Happy Women's Month! The Women's Month Booklet for Belize has been released. In it are messages from Kim Simplis-Barrow and Minister Martinez from the Ministry of Human Development, schedules of events for Cayo and all of Belize, and biographies of female role models throughout Belize. The image was made by Greg Godfrey. International Women's Day is March 8th. Have a great Women's Month!
"The Women’s Department has shown each year that there is no
shortage of role models in this country. I hope that the bios contained in this booklet will serve as a beacon of hope for those who place a limit on where they can go because of where they come from. Let’s keep the momentum growing by motivating more women and girls to uplift themselves, rise above the odds and chart their own paths to success. I want to congratulate the awardees, not only for the accomplishments that earned them this recognition, but for having the drive and determination that made it possible. Happy
Women’s Month to all!"
