Medical Mission Sisters (MMS) have long been passionate about improving the lives of women and advocating for their well-being. On March 8, we stand with others around the world in observing International Women’s Day. Since the early 1900s this day is considered a national holiday in many countries. Thousands of events occur throughout the month of March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. For 92 years, MMS have advocated equality and opportunities for women on the five continents in which we serve.
