The Head of the Liberia Peace Network (WOLPET) Madam Nna Kumba Thompson has hailed the participation of Liberian women in the decision making process of their country.
She said unlike in the past, Liberian women can now discuss issues affecting them openly.
She said the problems that women of Liberia faced in the past still exist today despite efforts by government to address those problems.
Madam Thompson stressed the need for the collaboration of more women organizations to work together aimed at advancing women's rights.
She urged women to report rape because it is a serious crime that should not be compromised.
For her part, Labor Minister Labor Varbah Gayflor said women have proven that gender equality is not only for men, but women as well.
"There were times women did not know that they have rights, so they accepted lot of things, but women have risen to the top in readiness to vie for the highest office in the decision- making process of our country," Minister Gayflor said.
