INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY MARCH 8
PRINCESS KATHERINE’S LETTER WOMEN’S HEALTH IN SERBIA
For International Women’s Day 8 March 2009 I extend my
congratulations to the women of Serb.
I am very proud of the women of our country because they
are strong, focused, proud and responsible. In these difficult times for
Serbia and our society, we have to be aware of our responsibilities as women
in Serbia. We must continue our struggle to preserve our families, and to
realize a better and happier future for our children and our country.
Women have always been the cohesion factor in our
society, a silent majority that has supported progress and change. From our
experience we can tell that women show better comprehension of social
problems and injustices, and better understanding of problems of everyday
life. Therefore, we must succeed in equal representation of women in all
segments of society, and especially in places where most important decisions
regarding the future of this country are made.
My Foundation initiated programs of cervical cancer
prevention and breast cancer prevention focusing on solving two of the major
health problems of women in Serbia. I would like to make an appeal to all
our women today, a fifteen minute visit to a doctor can save your life.
Please remember that!
As daughters, wives and mothers we have a responsibility
to our families and society to look after ourselves. I will try to do
everything I can to help women’s health in our country and I will be with
