    Background: President Marien Ngouabi of the people's Republic of the Congo attended the tenth anniversary of the setting up of the setting up of the Revolutionary Union of Women -- within the Congolese Worker's Party -- last Sunday (9 March) in the capital, Brazzaville.

    The Congolese President told his audience that woman's Freedom came from her own state of mind.

    The anniversary was held to co-incide with International Women's Year.

    The President of the Union, Mrs. Josephine Mountou-Bayonne, said the emancipation of woman must be regarded as a basic condition of progress in the Congolese society.

    A march-past was later held in the capital. Hundreds of Congolese women of all ages took part in the march.
