The International Women’s Day in Burkina Faso

Spending the 8th of March in Burkina Faso has been a joyful experience. We failed to find any particular event or celebration, but merely walking in the streets of Bobo Diulasso sufficed. Men, women and children have gotten special outfits tailored for this day. There is one particular fabric designed that everyone uses for their dresses and shirts that are sown in a range of variations. The fabric has a colorful pattern and printed logos reading:

«Journee Internationale de la Femme 08 Mars 2012 BURKINAFASO – Donner la vie sans perir» International Women’s Day March 8, 2012 Burkina Faso – Giving birth without dying

The logo implying that birth mortality is this years focus

After not finding any official event going on, we spent the day trying to take sneak photos of people wearing this costume. It wasn‘t an easy task as you don’t want to be too obvious, but we finally caught this favorite

8th of March dress, high heels and hijab

Happy Women’s day to all!

Our daughter was in the Peace Corps in Burkina several years ago. she brought me a yard of so of each year's fabric.
Do you know where (online?) one could find the 2012 fabric - or the fabrics of other years?
thanks
