As the ongoing presidential county tour which is meant to appreciate the confidence reposed in President George Manneh Weah as well as to listen to burning issues effecting the livelihood of the Liberian people, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection is leading a delegation in keeping with her responsibility to the development, empowerment and protection of women, girls and children as well as the vulnerable in ensuring that the plights of women and children are highlighted and documented on the tour and subsequently addressed by the Feminist-In-Chief.
On today, February 18, 2021, Gender Minister Williametta E. Saydee-Tarr appeared on Top FM - a local radio station in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County and rallied the populace especially women and girls to take maximum advantage of the president's presence in the county beginning Friday, February 19 to Sunday, February 21, 2021.
The Gender Boss said, women should view the occasion as an opportunity to inform the Feminist-In-Chief about issues affecting their empowerment and protection of the rights. She stressed that a synchronized message to the President is more likely to bear fruits than otherwise.
"I will take advantage of my time here to meet with my Gender staff, groups that Gender work with here, women, girls, youth, and the joint security to see how best we can streamline the work that we do as a Ministry especially addressing sexual and gender-based violence and harmful traditional practices such as female genital mutilation", Minister Saydee-Tarr stated.
