Women from various congregations form the Council of Churches (CCZ) member churches from across Lusaka took part in a march past to celebrate the International Women’s Day for the year 2015.
Fully clad in colorful church uniforms representing their denominations, over 500 christian women showed up at Heroes Stadium where a number of activities where lined up.
The women described their role in the national event as that of being part of the women in the country fighting for gender equality, to support and encourage each other in solidarity as women of Zambia.
This year the IWD was commemorated under the theme “Gender Is My Agenda, Make it Happen”.
The day has been commemorated since the early 1900.
