Every year, the world commemorates the International Women’s Day on 8th March. This is a day that has been set aside since 1910 and it aims to celebrate, honour and take stock of the situation of women’s rights all over the world. The theme for 2014 as declared by the UN is “Equality for women is progress for all”. It provides impetus for all women and men to unite and create stronger collaboration to promote equality in their communities. The theme also spells out our responsibility to work towards ensuring change in attitudes, practices and behaviour, as partners in development.
