The island of lemurs, a jewel of nature

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day in Nosy Komba, “Woman’s day”.

Day March 15, 2014 to Ampangorina is an echo of the official ceremony of the International Women’s Day on March 8, 2014 was in Ambanja on the mainland of Madagascar.

This March 15, all women’s associations of the island were present, dressed in lambaoany, they marched in procession through the streets of the village dancing and singing.

Each association has its own women holding her own dance and song.
Previously, there was a ranking of the most beautiful dances and outfits but the podium aroused too much jealousy and strife, the show remains intact but now there is more choice and classification.

Each year the celebration of Women’s Day March 8 takes place in a different city of Madagascar, in 2013 it was Nosy Be, in 2014 and 2015 Ambanja official day will be celebrated in Ambilobe.
