International Women’s Day is the story of women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in the society on an equal footing with men. This day is used as an occasion to review how far our society has come in their efforts to achieve gender equality, peace and development and should also be an opportunity to unite, network and mobilize for meaningful change. Around the world, women are mobilizing for a future that is more equal.
