IWD is a day set aside to celebrate women globally, it is a day when women are recognized for their achievements and how far we’ve come in terms of women’s rights.
We celebrated IWD2018 by giving out awards to women irrespective of their status, religion or ethnicity as a way of supporting them to do more and make their voices count in Nation building.
Meet some of these achievers:
Whether it’s women’s suffrage, the invention of the contraceptive pill, or improvements in the developing world, there’s plenty to be happy about in terms of the progress made on women’s rights and empowerment. Nevertheless, we also need to look ahead on how to improve in the future and #PressforProgress for women always. #TimeisNow
