JUBA, 10 March 2015 [Gurtong] – That statement from the first lady of South Sudan Mary Ayen Mayardit as the world marked International Women's Day on the 8th of March under the theme: "Empowering Women – Empowering Humanity."

She recognized that the women of South Sudan have endured many challenges in the journey to independence of the country and still are.

"Our journey as women has shown the world that we are capable of withstanding anything and are driven by our will to provide and protect our children and communities from injustices, in order to end the suffering that surrounds us. The country has benefitted from the efforts of women for many generations, as women have played a significant role in the grass-root liberation movement towards our independence," Madam Ayen stated.

Madam Ayen said that she will work diligently to support and promote a healthy and adequate way of living for women and young girls in the Republic of South Sudan.

"A nation where our mothers no longer seated helplessly watching over their children, a nation where our daughters are in school and our children no longer cry for the basic necessities of life. Let's not only picture the possibility of a bright future for all, but also stay committed to increase our efforts to grant that vision as a reality to the citizens of the republic of South Sudan."

"I stand before you and with you not only as a First Lady; but as a mother, a daughter, a sister and a wife. I share in your heartache, as I witness the harsh realities that you have had to face and are still facing to date in the journey for peace and stability. I honor you for your efforts to overcome our past and present conflicts and the effects it has had on you,” she added.

Madam Ayen urged all women to work towards bringing peace not only in their homes but the community at large.

She believes that if peace prevails then it will open new doors of opportunity for women and inspire positive change for the advancement of women across the nation.

"It is you (women) that have given birth to our past and present generations and it is you that will bring forth a better future for our nation. The contribution that you have made to this nation from women shall never go unacknowledged and unappreciated, for no society can live or progress without women,"
