Today marks International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women worldwide.

The United Nations, 2017 theme for International Women’s Day, focuses on Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030.

In a message released for International Women’s Day, the UN Secretary-General emphasises that Women’s rights are human rights. But in these troubled times, as our world becomes more unpredictable and chaotic, the rights of women and girls are being reduced, restricted and reversed.

Under the campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2017, the international community is asking everyone to #BeBoldForChange.
