Palestinian women protest ahead of International Women's Day

Azerbaijan marks International Women's Day

The meeting, which will bring together European Union institutional representatives, members of European Union national parliaments, experts and stakeholders, will take place on March 8.

On International Women's Day, and throughout this year, as we mark the centenary of the first women in the United Kingdom securing the right to vote, it is a time to look back on the huge progress that has been made in the fight for gender equality, and to celebrate the success of women in our great city. We need to be more optimistic while giving opportunities for women to decide for our society'. In countries like Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, and Rwanda some concerted efforts have been to reduce the marginalization of women especially in the areas of education, economic and political participation, access to healthcare and personal safety.

And what do many get in return? Plan India has been working to ensure gender equality through programmes like Samanta (wage parity), Saksham (economic empowerment) and Banking on Change (financial literacy and inclusion).

She believes "decades of work that have happened have mainstreamed International Women's Day in a way that makes (organisations), whether they are companies or state agencies or NGOs, recognise that this is a day to affirm not only women's empowerment but also the continued struggle that remains around very key issues".

While fight many social battles, and one day can not be seen as a true celebration really, but change often just starts with one.

Celebration on International Women's DayGlobal gatherings, conferences, awards, exhibitions, festivals, fun runs, corporate events, concert performances, speaking events, online digital gatherings are observed globally to mark International Women's Day.

Champion runner Sir Roger Bannister dies at 88
He was knighted in 1975 for his service as the first Chairman of Britain's Sports Council, according to The Telegraph . Six weeks later, on August 7, 1954, Bannister and Landy faced off at the British Empire Games in Vancouver.

The presentation and debates will deal with the topics of women shaping media, empowering women and girls through digital inclusion and women's movements and advancing equality in the digital age.

What this effectively does is that retaining women suddenly becomes a far more expensive proposition for employers. Flash that flawless smile and you will conquer the world. For without you, there would be no life. Internationally, the Commission supports projects fostering the rights of women who experienced gender-based violence, including sexual violence, in developing countries and in humanitarian crises.

You are the flexible river that travels a long distance but will not get exhausted. Men and Women, let's make the day a success.

Thank you and enjoy this special day. Remember that happiness is not complete in your absence. The women in Russian Federation observed the day on the last Sunday of February. Due to this, half of the women (50 percent) do not feel safe/ prefer to work night shifts.

Live life to the fullest! Every feeling and every moment of happiness is truly incomplete without you for only you can complete this world.

Panel 3: will include young high school and university female students who will discuss with the audience their experiences, challenges and how they see themselves in the future, as the next generation of Liberian women.
