International Women’s Day Ambassadors Tea
March 10, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
International Women’s Day (IWD), fixed by the United Nations in 1975 for March 8, celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women worldwide. This year’s International Women’s Day tea features a discussion of women’s suffrage in other countries.
Panelists include Ambassador Rosemary Banks of New Zealand, Ambassador Hunaina Sultan Ahmed Al Mughairy of Oman (Invited), and Political Officer Tania Lizette Rión Peña of Mexico, with Adrienne S. O’Neal, most recently US Ambassador to Cape Verde, as moderator. At this event, we also welcome as our guests young women from the EF’s Young Women’s Leadership Program.
During the tea, we will present six Vietnamese models, wearing long green and purple tunics representing the official colors of International Women’s Day: white, representing purity; purple, representing justice; and green, symbolizing hope.
