International Women’s Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace.
We have been trained in a society that sees a woman as a second fiddle and of no constructional use to the society at large. The norm is changing, on this day we are celebrating the importance of the female gender to show how important they are in developmental process.
Today is a day when various women, including political, community, and business leaders, as well as leading educators, inventors, entrepreneurs, and television personalities, are usually invited to speak at various events on the day. Such events may include seminars, conferences, luncheons, dinners or breakfasts. The messages given at these events often focus on various themes such as innovation, the portrayal of women in the media, or the importance of education and career opportunities. For us to achieve the SDGs, we need inclusion and participation across all sectors irrespective of the Gender. We at CleanEdge Solutions recognize how important a woman is to the society and hereby seek to protect every woman in our society especially in Nigeria where they are been marginalized.
The majority of the world’s 1.3 billion absolute poor are women. On average, women receive between 30 and 40 percent less pay than men earn for the same work. Women also continue to be victims of violence, with rape and domestic violence listed as significant causes of disability and death among women worldwide.
The International Women’s Day logo is in purple and white and features the symbol of Venus, which is also the symbol of being female.
