Eritrean Women’s Fashion Show

On March 31, in commemoration of International Women’s Day and the final day of Women’s History Month, the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Asmara hosted an Eritrean Fashion Show and three guest speakers who spoke on women’s issues. More than one hundred guests from different ministries, international delegations and the general public attended the event. During the intervals between the model’s displaying Eritrean fashions, students from the Eritrean Medical College and Mai-Nefhi College had the chance to discuss their research. An Eritrean teen-age girl also read on her own poems titled “Personality”. The program was one of our most successful events and many guests commented how entertaining and educational the event was.
