A 27-women member delegation representing the Successful Women Organization of Liberia, Thursday, April 7, paid a courtesy call on the Political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Mr. Alexander Cummings, at his office in Monrovia.

In general discussions, the women spoke of the difficult and harsh economic conditions they have to endure in supporting their families and sending their children to school. Worst of all, they lamented that marginalization of women and violence against women are becoming too unbearable in Liberia.
In response, Mr. Cummings expressed thanks and appreciation to the women group for the visit and assured them of the ANC’s and his strong commitment to supporting women’s empowerment, as well as protection of women’s rights against sexual-based violence including rape.
Mr. Cummings said it is unacceptable that in the abundance of wealth and natural resources, the vast majority of Liberians are living in abject poverty due to gross mismanagement by the national Leadership.
