President Celebrates International Women's Day

President Celebrates International Women's Day

On her opening address this weekend as Malta's second only female President, President of the Republic Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca said that international women’s day is an occasion “when us women can celebrate our role in today’s world".

It is also an event where we can reflect on the good that has been done and what still needs to be done in terms of women’s rights”.

In her message, she said: “As much as our role outside our homes is an important development both from a political and economical perspective the personal and social development of women is also important.

She called for more incentives to encourage women to join the labour workforce be it fiscal incentives or those related to legislation. Ms Coleiro Preca also mentioned those women who choose to stay home and contribute in more ways than one.

“We must continue to ensure that women’s rights are safeguarded, despite the fact that progress has been made in this regard,” Ms Coleiro Preca said. Turning to the gender pay gap, Ms Coleiro Preca said that despite the fact that many more women are furthering their studies and graduating, there still exists a discrepancy in wages.

She praised companies in Malta who have contributed to gender equality and welcomes continued change in 2015.
