On Behalf of the Fijian Government, the Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation invites all Fijians to join women all over the world in celebrating International Women's Day. In 1977, two years after the International Women's Day originated, the United Nations made a decision to invite the nations to spend one day expressing the interests of women and world peace.

International Women's Day commemorates the women's rights movement and continues to recognize the struggle and triumphs that women face today all around the world. And that pay gap, where women earn $73 for every $100 a man earns today would be almost wiped away.

Guterres asserted that investing in women lifts up communities, companies and countries, declaring: "Stand with women, listen to them and learn from them".

Al Darabi said that one of the main initiatives of UNIC for 2018 is women development and to transfer the momentum to relentlessly working towards giving them equal rights in the society.

Fierce journalist, working mum and all-round Superwoman Carrie Bickmore posted a fun Boomerang encouraging women to, "Go kick some arse today ladies". Cases like these are left out and are a cause of concern to the stakeholders' council.

Over the past year, my Administration has championed the creation of worldwide initiatives to promote women's economic empowerment.

Customers flying with the airline on International Women's Day on March 8 will also be able to watch the video of the journey during their flight. We have to fight for the recognition we deserve and work hard to fend for our families.


International Men's Day is an annual event celebrated on November 19 in more than 60 countries.

"UN is pleased and proud to be collaborating with Bahrain Women Union and other participating bodies to celebrate the global women's day", Head of UN Information Centre (UNIC) Samir Al Darabi told DT News.

"I certainly want to have my grandchildren to live in a Ghana where we have gender parity so this year's theme speaks to something deep within me".

Too many women have to endure the horrors of abuse - sexual, emotional and physical, sex trafficking, forced marriages, genital mutilation, rape, and ridiculous laws and customs.

Last year Women Together was presented with an Award for Faith and Belief Communities in London from 3FF - Three Faiths Forum.

One of the more surprising findings was that company networks that are exclusive to women help promote gender equality, but businesses with women's networks that are open to both women and men help more.
