NSE Calls For Gender Equality, Women's Empowerment

UN chief says inequality against women harms everyone

Bridge for Equity, an advocacy group that is geared towards creating awareness and public education about gender issues says this year's theme for the International Women's Day (IWD) is timely and relevant.

The celebrations were held under the theme: "Time is now: rural and urban activists transforming women's lives".

If we put actual discrimination, which is unlawful, to one side, the most significant insight that a gender pay gap conveys is that an organisation has proportionately more men in the most highly paid jobs than women in those highly paid jobs. He mentions also the director of the Vatican museums and the first female rector of a pontifical university, but adds these examples "should never be used as an excuse to think we've done enough or that the presence of women in strong enough in Curial leadership". At least 71% of human trafficking victims, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, are women and girls, who are usually sold into marriage or sexual slavery. "We have girl power".

"Access to justice remains an issue too".

"We are all about the girls". Cases like these are left out and are a cause of concern to the stakeholders' council.

International Women's Day (IWD) has been observed since the early 1900's - a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. We must push the private sector to do a lot better than it now is. It goes a long way in boosting our self confidence as women.

Delivering her keynote address, Laure Beaufils commended the NSE for setting out a day like this to celebrate women.

"Despite passing equal pay legislation in Ireland more than 40 years ago, in 1974, women have still not achieved anything close to pay parity with our male colleagues", said the Senator yesterday. We saw some areas where there were no improvements, like unpaid work, and in family arrangements - the so-called private sphere, where men and women have to decide on their own how they divide their responsibilities.

IWD has developed into a formally recognised day by the United Nations and is today celebrated around the world. The IRC's "Empowering Women and Girls" campaign offers donors an array of causes to support like a healthy pregnancy, newborn baby kits, a year of school in countries including Afghanistan and the Congo and small business training for women.

The Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MCIS) of 2014 reports that 32 percent of women in Zimbabwe aged between 20 and 49 years were married off before the age of 18.
