International Women’s Day

http://allafrica.com/stories/201203081021.html

Today in the Hague, ICC celebrates its 10th anniversary and recognized today also as  International Women’s Day, to serve reminder of the urgency for all government to ensure justice for women. The Rome Statute of ICC is one of the first international treaties address gender-based crime as crimes against humanity, war crimes, and some cases genocide.

It is hard to believe ICC has only been around for 10 years, when so much has already been accomplished and recognized, feel likes its been a milestone for them. By having a first female and African Chief Prosecutor, I’m sure the rights of women will be push further in the continent of Africa, it would only benefit the disadvantage women in parts of Africa.

    Very excited that the next Chief Prosecutor is a woman for so many reasons.
