International Women's Day

Today we celebrate International Women's Day, a day that reminds us to recognise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world. But while this day is an important opportunity to emphasise the importance of gender equality, we should be aware that this recognition and support should not be limited to a single day.

Gender equality is an ongoing process that should take place every day, every week and every month of the year. We must actively work towards a world in which women have the same opportunities, rights and possibilities as men. This means breaking gender stereotypes, promoting women in leadership positions, ensuring equal pay and combating violence against women.

Today, let's use International Women's Day to commit to working for gender equality all year round. Together, let's build a world where women and girls are free to realise their full potential and thrive equally.
