This year, in recognition of International Women’s Day, the Embassy of the United States in Mali recognized 30 courageous and talented Malian women through a month-long Facebook campaign. Every day, for 30 days, the Embassy highlighted the work of each woman and their achievements. The Embassy has had the honor of working with these women on exchange programs, educational initiatives and development projects. The U.S. Embassy is proud of their achievements and also proud to call them “partners” in strengthening cooperation and friendship between the United States and Mali. The social media campaign was part of the International Women’s Day celebration and it used the hashtags #30Jours30Femmes (30 days – 30 women) and #FiereDetreFemme (proud to be a woman). Encouraging women to achieve their full potential should not be done only on March 8, but every day of the year. We look forward to continuing our partnership in this important domain throughout the year ahead!
