International Women’s Day message
from HRH Crown Princess Katherine
It is my great pleasure to extend
my most sincere congratulations to
all women of Serbia and Montenegro
on the occasion of 8 March,
International Women’s Day.
Women in our country are like
ambassadors and heroes. They
preserve their families and
relationships in the days of
greatest suffering, struggling to
build a good future. Their
additional battle for the place that
women deserve in our society is an
example of the independence that we
have been aspiring to for centuries.
It is now time for all women in
Serbia and Montenegro to step out
from the past times of darkness and
procure a more constructive and
resolute role in the development of
society, a role that was given to
them by birth. Only then we will be
sure that our country is continuing
democratic reform and gender
equality, the foundation of the kind
of future women unquestionably wish
to bestow upon their offspring.
There is nothing left to prove,
it is clear that our women are
equally capable of supporting the
development of the country,
simultaneously holding the duty of
spouse, mother and friend.
I am sending to all the appeal to
take a more active part in
establishing the role of women in
decision making and nation building.
This is the theme of International
Women’s Day, and is of key
importance regarding equality in
Serbia and Montenegro.
I congratulate all women in our
country аnd express my admiration
for their tolerance and endurance
they have shown during the difficult
times. Please remember I am always
