  • International Women's Day


    We celebrate today, among other attributes, the wisdom and strength
    of womankind.

    Today, we applaud our womenfolk who build lives and homes from
    houses and give life to generations.

    Today, we salute their virtues and, in particular, their courage to
    "Choose to Challenge"

    Jamaica’s Olympic and Paralympic movements pay tribute reverently
    and with pride to the world's women in sport, living and departed, and
    are grateful for the character they gave and continue to give to a
    global village.
