Celebrate: International Women's Day!

I invite you to celebrate International Women's Day!!!! Find out why:

"International Women's Day(IWD) ia a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women in the past, present and future. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievement, regardless of divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political." 

"IWD has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women movement,which has been strengthened by four global United Nation's women's conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women's right's and progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities"

"The purpose of this day is to recognize the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require the active participating, equality and development of women, and to acknowledge the contribution of women to strengthening international peace and security".

"For the women of the world, the symbolism of IWS has wider meaning, It is an occasion to review how far women have come in their struggle for equality, peace and development. Is is also an opportunity to unite, network and mobilize for meaningful change".
