April 2 was International Day for Mine Awareness

Women in Angola have come up with a unique way of celebrating the UN International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action while at the same time promoting female and disabled pride and empowerment. Far from your typical North American beauty pageant, Miss Landmine Angola is challenging not only mainstream conceptions of beauty but is also calling on countries to redouble their efforts to eliminate antipersonnel landmines. Canada has an important role to play in this respect, one that up until now has fallen short of our previous commitment to the elimination of landmines.
