International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political accomplishments of women. Today Monday March 8, denotes a source of inspiration for accelerating sex equality.
As we celebrate this unique day for women, significant activities are being seen worldwide as several groups have met up to celebrate women’s accomplishments or rally for women’s uniformity.
The International Women’s Day is marked every year on March 8, and is quite possibly the most important days of the year to:
Celebrate women’s achievements
Raise awareness about women’s equality
Lobby for accelerated gender parity
Fundraise for female-focused charities
The theme for this year’s celebration is:
‘Choose To Challenge’. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change. So let’s all #ChooseToChallenge.
International Women’s Day has happened for over a century with the first meeting held in 1911, with Purple, green and white representing the colours of International Women’s Day.
Purple connotes justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope, and white representing purity. The tones started from the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) in the UK in 1908.
As per the World Economic Forum, sadly none of us will see sexual orientation equality in the course of our lives, and nor likely will a considerable lot of our children. Gender equality won’t be achieved for right around a century.
And so that is the reason we as a whole, need hands on deck to assume a significant part to advance the plan of sexual orientation equality.
Happy International Women’s Day!!
