MARKET vendors gathered in Lautoka today to mark International Day for Rural Women.

The occasion was one designed for reflection and solemnity as women shared stories of their hardships and struggles while being market vendors.

The event was funded by UN Women through its Markets for Change project.

Organisation representative Mouna Peters reminded women that it was important for them to continue in their roles as vendors because this was important towards nation building.
