Celebrating International Women's Day 2018 around the world

Thousands March for Women’s Rights in Zagreb

Happy women's day to every virtuous and incredible woman, your presence is inexpressible in few words and so are your deeds.

To measure the world's progress toward gender equality, the World Economic Forum (WEF) created the Global Gender Gap Index a decade ago.

According to Onyema, the Exchange took steps to address the lack of female representation on our National Council by electing three eminent female members at the last AGM.

True to the global theme of #PressForProgress, the girls debated the equality question with one of the participants arguing that "we can be women at home, but at work, we are equal to men".

Meanwhile the Centre for Democratic Congress (CDD), in a statement marking International Women's Day, has commended various stakeholders for their immeasurable contribution towards the fight for women's rights, justice, and equality.

It is a day to commemorate the struggle for women's rights and celebrate the political, social, economic and cultural achievements of women.

"Women's empowerment is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development".

"One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman". Accredited NGOs and the United Nations entities from all over the world took the pile of remaining challenges as well as the so-far progress towards meeting the 8 MDGs (Millennium Development Goals).

It calls us, first, to recognize that women suffer disproportionately from every aspect of capitalist exploitation and oppression, from poverty and austerity to environmental degradation and imperialism-just as they have borne the brunt of inequality in every class-based society.

"We're delighted to be involved in celebrations for this global movement, which we wholeheartedly support, and hope our employees relish the opportunity to participate in the name of all of the women in their lives".

Supermodel, Lisa Morgan said it was critical for women in showbiz to value themselves rather than allow outsiders - like modelling agencies - "to make money off us". To share experiences and initiatives in addressing the challenges faced by women.

"The theme is really about bringing people together and working collaboratively irrespective of gender ... to contribute to society and also pave the way for others", she said.
