In our everyday experiences, we are blessed with beautiful women who grace our lives in the form of mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, grandmothers, aunties, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, etc. They step into our lives and leave an indelible mark.

True, they make our lives beautiful but they face difficult realities in the family, social, political, cultural, economic aspects of their lives. Despite all that, many have stood out to make their voice heard and taken up leadership roles at different levels in the society.

Through Serving, Educating, and Representing, the YCW has seen women making a difference in their lives and in the lives of other fellow women around them. Today we see more and more women in leadership within the YCW movements in the world. This is evidenced by the fact that, for the first time in the 25 years of ICYCW, the International Secretariat is composed of women only.

It is in this same spirit that today, together with the rest of the world, the YCW family celebrates the WOMEN in our lives. We encourage all the women in the world stand up for their rights, believe in themselves, and be agents of change in the church and in the society.
