International Women’s Day

In Senegalese culture it is hilarious when a man serves a woman. Just imagine the laughs when all the male personnel of the clinic, including the director, served the women bowls with food. March 8 is International Women’s Day. It is a day to bring the rights of women to the attention, but in Senegal another special reason for a party. And when women party, that means that we all buy the same fabric and have a nice outfit made of it. I must admit that this is good for solidarity and team spirit. Moreover, it gives fantastic entertainment and a nice opportunity to complement one another about style and creativity. And when the food was all finished; the men got up and danced for us!
