Gender Ministry Announces 2018 International Women's Day Celebration

Azerbaijan marks International Women's Day

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It falls on March 8 every year, and is celebrated by nearly every other women's brand reminding us to feel empowered, while standing up for the equality and freedom for ladies.

A great way to introduce younger kids to Women's Day is to start off the day with an age appropriate story about an influential girl or woman.

Another initiative to be discussed is the Women's Empowerment Principles, a set of operating guidelines developed by UN Women and the UN Global Compact that embodies the business case for gender equality.

While the festival runs for almost two weeks in Belfast and throughout the north, Thursday March 8 is the day when women's groups throughout the world will focus on women's achievements while highlighting fights for equalities which still need to be won.

There are set to be tons of IWD events going on across the United Kingdom - see what's going on near you below.

Ms Kennedy said: "There are many challenges facing us as women as we continue the struggle for equality". She has extensive experience in the area of gender equality and women's empowerment, having held various leadership positions in government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the United Nations, said Dujarric.

"Rather than pushing for behavioural change among women, workplaces should instead check for gender biases in how they value their workers' attributes to ensure they don't reward charisma over competence". Men and Women, let's make the day a success.

So basically the idea is not to give gender equality to the women when International Women's Day is around apart it says to place women on the same podium where men are standing as women are equally capable just the way men are.

"We are at a pivotal moment for women's rights".

It's you who are making the difference in so many lives - And I am one of them. The Belfast Ukulele Orchestra, three female Roller Derby teams and representatives of Women and State Pension Inequality will be joining other groups on the march.

The fallout of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the rise of the #MeToo and Time's Up campaigns and Hollywood's red carpet protests combined to made this a landmark year in the fight for gender equality.

The first of this series of interviews will be released on 8 March 2018, and a weekly update thereafter - so please stay posted through our daily newsletter, HR Bulletin.

Across the world, women earn on average 77% that of men and women with children can expect to earn less than childless women when they return to work, according to analysis by the International Labour Organisation. The theme for 2018 is #PressforProgress. It reminds us that even in the face of growing recognition and achievement, we can't become complacent, but rather, now more than ever, we must come together to motivate families and friends, and press forward.
