2018 International Women's Day

It’s International Women's Day!

This day is recognised annually on March 8.

The United Nations states that sexual harassment, violence and discrimination against women continue to capture headlines and public discourse, propelled by a rising determination for change.

But once more, International Women’s Day this year provides the opportunity to transform this momentum into action, to empower women in all settings – rural and urban– and celebrate the activists who are working relentlessly to claim women’s rights and realise their full potential.
