Aung San Suu Kyi: Message to migrant and refugee women from Burma on International Womens Day

Posted on: 19 March 2011

Over the week of International Women’s Day MAP Foundation organised a gathering for migrant and refugee women from Burma in Chiang Mai, Thailand, supported with a modest contribution from No Sweat.

Many of the women who attended work in sweatshop conditions in the garment factories in Mae Sot.

To the great surprise and delight of the participants a video was shown of a personal message of solidarity for International Womens Day from Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.
