International Women's Day - 2021-03-08
What is International Women's Day?
As we approach International Women’s Day on March 8, it’s a great time to reflect on the achievements of women around the world. The day also serves as an opportunity to raise awareness about gender parity. According to the World Economic Forum, gender equality will not be achieved until 2133. Gender equality means men and women have equal access to the same rights and opportunities. And these rights and opportunities are: health care, education, employment, economic gain, protection under the law, right to vote, and freedom from violence. In some areas of the world, women are less likely to own land, a business, or attend school. While education is key to increasing their financial opportunities, female literacy alone is not enough. Female empowerment also comes from ownership of land, businesses, and schools. When women thrive financially, so do their children and families. Additionally, when the women of a community prosper, so does the community.
