Let's Hear it For The Girls … It's International Women's Day!

International Women's Day and national celebrations will be held in Mityana District under the theme: "Empowerment of Rural Women and Girls: Challenges and Opportunities".

The theme for this year's International Women's Day is "Time is Now: Rural and Urban Activists Transforming Women's Lives".

In the United Kingdom, many people who did not know that they were being paid less than the man sitting next to them have suddenly realised that there's a significant gender pay gap and have added their voices to this issue, and we've seen some significant changes in company policies as a effect.

Millions of women and men rallied for an International Women's Day in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Denmark on March 19, 1911.

Now, over a century later International Women's Day continues to be a powerful platform that unifies tenacity and drives action for gender equality, while also celebrating the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women.

A local group is calling on the provincial government to "elevate women's economic vulnerability", saying it would benefit everyone -especially women.

Though it has evolved over the years, the earliest Women's Day took place over a century ago in NY.

At the global level, UN Secretary General, António Guterres says the world is at a pivotal moment for women's rights.

Until the world's women live free of violence and poverty, and lead half the world's countries, gender justice will be on women's to-do lists. It is in the interest of us all - the fans, the families, and every girl and woman who has been able to fully realise her dreams through athletic participation. Just like the men who ask when International Men's Day is could do on International Men's Day for men, but generally don't. The day has come to be progressively connected with women's liberation and equivalent rights for ladies. This initiative found a stable ground in Soviet Russia after the 1917 revolution, because it resulted in the equal rights for all Soviet people: both men and women. As of November previous year, women were paid 72% of what men earned for rural construction work.

Back then, it was called National Woman's Day, and celebrated for the first time on February 28, 1909.

According to her, the act of encouraging each other as women will bring the desired impact needed in making a change and that will eventually push for the male society's support for gender parity.
