|Message To Women's Seminar|
Dec. 14, 1960
|Africa has accepted the challenge of the modern world and with it come grave responsibilities. |
Many discouraging hours will arise before the rainbow of accomplished goals will appear on the
horizon. African civilization in its potential magnitude must be able to command fortitude,
patience, tolerance and diligence. To sustain us in all our tasks we count on the women of Africa.
Without their relentless vigilance no aspect of our responsibilities can be attained. Woman's role
has never been so demanding, and you can be proud to answer this call for the betterment and
future of mankind.
Ethiopia welcomes you and wishes you God-speed in your deliberations.
|Haile Selassie the First - December 14, 1960|
