On IWD, the 8th of March 2012, they organized a rally at the Fort Railway Station, protesting the same issue. On the 10th of March 2012 they organized a historic event where a IWD celebration was held in Mulativu in the Northern Province, for the first time after the end of the war. This event was attended by women from the North and the East of the country as well as women from the South of the country who travelled to Mulativu.
