The key Architect of the program, Liberia’s Culture Ambassador Juli Endee says this year ‘s event will take on a different dimension, awarding only women, while acknowledging the enormous contributions and support of Liberia’s dynamic Feminist in Chief and principal He-for-She partner, as a forerunner for women empowerment in Liberia.
She noted that this year’s anniversary will primarily focus on celebrating women of substance globally, with the theme: “stop the violence against women,” as international women share the stage with Liberian women.The award which is the 9th edition, will also place highlight on adolescent girls in Nimba and Grand Bassa counties.
Ambassador Endee has spoken of the need to keep elevating the profile and sacrifices of women for their role in development and the socio-economic and political advancement of our country.
The Culture Ambassador says the 2019 Golden Image Award is particularly unique as it coincides with the National Patriotic Initiative, “Show Love” campaign that has been ongoing for several months, intended to promote love, peace and tolerance among Liberians, with emphasis on maintaining the peace in the country.-Press release
