 International Women's Day is a day of recognition and a celebration that celebrates the acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities, while also campaigning for greater progress towards gender equality. This day has been observed since the early 1900s, and is now recognised and celebrated on March 8th every year.

International Women's Day campaign theme is #BreakTheBias. An equal world is an enabled world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day .We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world. Let's all be #EachforEqual.

Quote of The Day

"It is really hard to be lonely very long in a world of words. Even if you don't have friends somewhere, you still have language, and it will find you and wrap its little syllables around you and suddenly there will be a story to live in." – Naomi Shihab Nye
