Ethiopian Legend Women
We do have so many women that can be mentioned as a strong, creative, mind-blowing intelligent and historically elite women in Ethiopia. We shouldn't go far we have our mothers! We looking up for women as a role model; we all have our mothers, grandmothers and sisters not going any further. Looking out of this circle; everyday there are strong working women, our neighborhood shop owners, teachers and our elders even as retirees. We also have them in visible as administrators and warriors. They also served as a strong soldiers, act as advisors on important communal matters and more. As late as the first part of the nineteenth century, Queen Menen, consort of Emperor Iyasu, had a decisive role in running the Ethiopian Empire. Workit and Mestayit regents to their minor sons have been held responsible for their provinces. Women in the ensuing period continued in traditional family and household roles, working in the homestead, raising children, and preparing the ingredients for traditional Ethiopian cuisine. More recently, there has been a steady increase in female representation in education, politics and other fields.
In Ethiopia it was considered quite natural that a woman should have held supreme power. Here was a woman to whom courage and endurance were attributed, who had intellectual and spiritual interests, and was willing to endure hardship in search of knowledge.
Two thousand years later, probably in the 10th century AD another legendary queen took the stage in Ethiopia. Although, the Aksumite Empire she overthrew is known, from the inscriptions and monuments left behind, and from observations of foreign traders, there little more authentic information about her than about Makeda. There is evidence only that a rebellious queen led the forces which destroyed the old Christian order. Variously referred to as Gudit, Gwedit, Yodit, Judith, and as “Isat” – Amharic for fire.
Too often, systems are not designed that allow women to succeed not only in Ethiopia, but in the entire world. It is believed women consist half of the population here in Ethiopia and gender inequality is perpetuated by both formal and informal systems, structures and attitudes, even though this they always prove to show their great power in every aspect. Before the 1974 Revolution, women's organized activities were run by non -governmental bodies such as Ethiopian Women's Welfare Association, the Ethiopian Officer's Wives Association and the Ethiopian Female Students' Association.
Did you know August celebrates "International Women's Equality Day"? International women's equality day is on August 26, which; the date was chosen to commemorate the day in 1920 when Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby signed the proclamation granting American women the constitutional right to vote.
Well this August, it is International Women’s Equality Day on August 26 and for most or all us has women heroes and legends in our lives; well we all should celebrate and lift up all our women around us even motherhood is the hardest and bravest job in the world. #HappyInternationalWomenEqualityDay
