Madam Chairperson,
On behalf of the Government of the state of Eritrea, I  am honored to address the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status  of Women on the priority theme:  “Challenges   and opportunities in  achieving    gender   equality   and  the   empowerment  of  rural  women   and girls”.I would like to  express my appreciation to you and the  members  of the  bureau for conducting the business of  our session  in an effective and efficient  manner. I wish   to pay tribute to all women who   fought and continue to fight for women’s equality.   Let me equally pay tribute to Eritrean women for their enormous sacrifices in the liberation of the country and in the emancipation of women. Women’s overall status in today’s Eritrea is the result of the efforts and investments made during the liberation struggle by all freedom fighters. However, gender inequalities persist,   and we as women and the government are determined to address the obstacles to the full realization of gender equality.
