Call to action to respect women

Meidcal Mission Sisters in Hajipur, Patna, North India called for a solidarity action when a young dalit girl was raped, murdered and thrown into a gutter, in a government run hostel in Bihar, India. The fear was that neither the police nor the local authorities would take any action against those involved in this action.

International Women's Day

On March 8, Medical Mission Sisters join millions around the world in marking International Women’s Day. Observed since the early 1900s, in many countries it is a national holiday. Thousands of events not only occur on this day but throughout the month of March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Medical Mission Sisters have advocated equality and opportunities for women for over 90 years on the five continents in which we serve.
