Library focuses on rights

IN light of International Women's Day 2014, which is marked today, students from primary schools around Suva were treated to an hour of information-sharing, colouring and card-making by members of the Suva City Library and UN Women yesterday.

The students had the opportunity to learn more about the history of the Women's Day and got to create cards addressed to the special women in their lives.

Speaking to the children was UN Women Markets for Change co-ordinator Vilisi Veibataki who said children should use such occasions to reflect and be grateful for the women they knew.

"We all have special women in our lives — our mothers, sisters, aunties, grandmothers and friends — and a lot of them we look up to, and for this reason we celebrate International Women's Day," Ms Veibataki said.
