International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the fundamental roles upheld by women in society, and the life and joy they bring to the world. The day is also about acknowledging the plight for women’s rights, and the fact that still in this day and age, gender discrimination and inequalities evidently exist within our societies. Today, we look towards a future in which women are treated with the common decency with which we expect to treat every individual, a future in which gender equality is at the heart of all that we do. To find out more about the campaign, visit the event’s official website here. On the website we are also given the chance to pledge our support of gender parity within our global community, a fantastic practical action that has been supported by leaders across the globe.
