International Women’s Day is celebrated annually to acknowledge the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women across the globe. It falls on March 8 every year, and is celebrated by almost every other women’s brand reminding us to feel empowered, while standing up for the equality and freedom for ladies. While women have proved themselves as fierce fighters, they are still called the ‘weaker sex’ irrespective of the milestones they have achieved.
And what do many get in return? Gender discrimination, pay disparity, sexual harassment, child marriage, abuse and exploitation? Is this fair? Tackling the pressing need for change, this year the United Nation’s theme for International Women’s Day 2018 is ‘PressForProgress’. It is a reminder that despite all the progress we have seen in recent years, there’s a long way to go for gender equality.
While fight many social battles, and one day cannot be seen as a true celebration really, but change often just starts with one. So, this International Women’s Day, here are some photos, images and messages to share with the women in your life, to show that you care and respect them.
