The issue of gender equality and the "gap" that persists even in 2023 between men and women is not sufficiently present in the modern public perception. Inequalities lurk and affect millions of women every day, while stereotypes, ways of behaving and laws seem "normal", either because "that's how we grew up", or because it doesn't bother us as we consider that they don't affect us personally.

International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8 every year as a day of remembrance of the struggles of the women's movement women's rights.

On the occasion of International Women's Day, eight women from Famagusta District, distinguished in various fields, sent us their own message for this special day.

Gabriella Zartila, Presenter of "Front Page"

"Today is not a day of celebration but a reminder of the struggle that women did and are doing from end to end for the obvious. Today let us expect no gift, but daily demand that all women have equal rights with men. The age-old perception that a woman must choose either the family or the career is now in the past".

Maria Tofini Tsandila, Cultural Officer of the Municipality of Agia Napa

"Woman of life, woman of poetry, woman of dream, of struggle, whatever we write or try to capture about the course or trial of the woman in our life, however much we admire her heroism and are shocked by so much suffering and pain, we are overcome by her strength, her magnanimity and her passionate struggle for survival. We are overcome by the source of life that runs in her veins, we are overcome by her role in the theater stage of life. Faced with pandemics, inequalities, wars, natural disasters, in every hardship she stands proud and waits, just as she was nurtured by her great-grandmother, grandmother, mother but also from the hug and love of the daughter, the granddaughter and the whole family, the hope of life... Mother, I will be late, go to sleep... but sleep does not come and the hatch never closes.

Happy Birthday Woman Beautiful of Life!!!”

Koula Goumenou, Clinical Dietician – President of Branch Managers of Paralimni

"We honor all women for their contribution to society and it's a day to support equality. Woman is a silent force and is now everywhere. Mother, worker, housewife. You will find her in politics, in the Church, in the construction of houses, in banks in managerial positions, in businesses because she has now learned to decide correctly and independently. Happy birthday to each woman individually. The road to full equality is still long but we will make it. Respect for women. A woman can be a great mother and a perfect professional. She can by her nature do many things tirelessly, unstoppable because she is blessed by God. So she should stop being wronged. Women must feel capable and invincible away from all physical and verbal violence".

"Happy birthday to all women! Today's woman can conquer anything, as long as she knows that success also requires sacrifice. He has unlimited abilities and can really change the world for the better if he wants to. Indispensable elements that help her progress and succeed are not only knowledge but passion for what she does, dedication, organization, hard work and her insistence on perfection. But she must find the golden balance between her multiple roles as a mother, as a wife and as a professional, because only then will she feel happiness and fulfillment."

"Woman! A strong form where she can cope with all the roles of life ..Woman means: Mother, wife, friend, housewife, worker and yet the support! No matter how many obstacles she has to face, she will always find a way to stand up to her! Each one of us with our own peculiarities but at the same time so special.. To love ourselves and to admire it.. Because our biggest flaw is that sometimes we forget how much we are worth! Happy birthday!"
