U.S. Ambassador to Malawi Virginia Palmer on April 12 hosted a “Fabulous Women” reception to celebrate women and some of the amazing achievements Malawian women have accomplished in the past year. Ambassador Palmer highlighted the first all-female flight on Malawian Airlines and the constitutional amendment combating child marriage as some of the milestones attained by women in the country.
She encouraged women to “be a positive voice for yourself, for the other women here tonight, and especially for the girls and young women coming along behind us.” First Lady Madam Gertrude Mutharika was the guest of honor at the event, which was also attended by Second Lady Mary Chilima.
