“Empowering women isn’t just the right thing to do – it’s the smart thing to do… When women succeed, nations are more safe, more secure, and more prosperous.”— Barrack Obama

The world needs the talents of everyone – women, men, girls and boys – to truly reach its full potential.

Women have made enormous progress toward equality over the years around the world.

On International Women’s Day (March 8) we are celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. We recognise the many achievements of women and celebrate their contributions to society.

The day provides an opportunity to take stock of our progress towards gender equality and to reflect on the barriers that remain.

We all know: full gender equality for women around 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. Figures show that globally, women’s education, health and violence towards women is still worse than that of men.

According to the World Economic Forum, the gender gap won’t close until 2186.

On International Women’s Day,  women across the world come together to force the world to recognise these inequalities – while also celebrating the achievements of women who have overcome these barriers.

Make sure to take a moment today to remind yourself that you’re an amazing strong woman.

We wish you a Happy International Women’s Day!
