Happy women's day to all the Women Around the World

Mandy Seember Kaunan 
The International Working Women’s Day, March 8 is a special day for women. Celebrating this day every year is a call out to everyone around the world to stand up for the equality and freedom for the ladies, as well as their contribution to society. Paying a homage to the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women, the day brings an air of change with it.

A woman gives birth to a newborn, and is still called as the “weaker sex”. Isn’t it ironic? A mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, a friend, a nurturer and a guiding light — she plays multiple roles and lives up to every expectation that the society burdens her. And, what does she get as a reward? Gender discrimination, pay disparity, sexual harassment, child marriage, abuse and exploitation! Is this fair? It’s high time that the world strives for change and takes a strong action in that direction.
Gender parity is still a cause of concern and global action is needed to speed up the progress of women in countries all around the world. The 2017 campaign theme is Be Bold For Change! From walking neck-to-neck with men to breaking all the barriers, women are pacing ahead with a strong sense of grit and determination. 
Celebrate the women around you. Happy women's day to all the beautiful creatures called women.
