According to sources International Women's Day in its illustrious journey has marked the plight and achievements of women for more than a century. Moreover since then the day has been officially recognized by the UN and is celebrated across the world. It is celebrated on March 8 every year. Sources have stated that the event was marked by more than a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.
Meanwhile in recent times, only a fifth of parliamentary seats are held by women and only 19 heads of state out of a possible 196 are women. While this is seven more than what was 20 years ago, there is still much progress to be made. Accordingly women are also predicted to face another 118 year wait for the gender pay gap to close, with only 55 of the 500 richest people in the world being women.
Moreover the new agenda for International Women’s Day is to build on the
unfulfilled Millennium Development Goals, and has a standalone goal just for
the empowerment of women and girls as a core means of tackling economic
under performance, global overpopulation and poverty worldwide. Furthermore
International Women’s Day also celebrates the achievements of women throughout
history and moreover in some countries, the day is a national holiday.
