Although some may fault Zambia for a number of reasons, here’s one to celebrate it. They have a holiday called “Mothers Day” for women who have children or don’t have chidren. The law allows the women to take the day off due to the pain associated with menstruation. Once again..Africa is paving the way to lead by example showing the Western world how to be innovative and modern.
As Linda Kasonde, a senior lawyer, tells me:”The reason why mother’s day is important within the Zambian context is that it recognises that women are the primary care-givers in our society – regardless of whether they are married or not.” source
