Tomorrow marks the worldwide celebration of International Women’s Day. Stakeholders from all over the world come together on 8th of March each year to acknowledge and celebrate the social, economic and political achievements of women and also call for actions that will promote gender parity in the world.
This year’s theme is #PressforProgress and is a clarion call to all of us to keep up the fight because now more than ever we cannot afford to give up. We can’t deny that women have made great strides in recent years as far as fighting misogyny and promoting women empowerment is concerned. Women have more access to resources and it is no longer as uncommon to see women in powerful positions as it was in the past. Girls have more female role models and are given the message that they can do it, whether it’s acing mathematics and science subjects in school or owning their own companies.
