The original aim of Women's Day –that is, to achieve full gender equality for all women in the world– has still not been realised. A gender pay gap persists across the globe and women are still not present in equal numbers in business or politics. Women’s education, health and violence towards women is still worse than that of men.
The gender gap is still wide open. So the fight can't be over. Let's come together to force the world to recognise these inequalities – while also celebrating the achievements of women who have overcome these barriers.
Can you imagine a future where there’s no need at all to even have an International Women’s Day? Where there is total equality for men and women? Hmmm … something to think about but perhaps in your lifetime this could happen!?
