Minister of Gender Affairs marks observance of International Women's Day 2018

Azerbaijan marks International Women's Day

This will be followed by our International Women's Day Motivational Seminar for Women and Girls on the 20th at the Occasions Entertainment Centre, where we will invite the participation of young women in an exciting confidence building session.

Here's a look at some of the fun ways International Women's Day can be celebrated at school.

"However, before expecting a change in the pay parity policy, attitudes of men and women need to shift for this to become a reality". Many activists within global and Latin American women's movements credit the United Nations and its declarations and conferences for improvements in women's rights and addressing gender discrimination.

The theme of this year's day is - Time is Now: Rural and urban activists transforming women's lives'. The past year saw unprecedented global movement for women's rights, equality and justice.

A woman named Clara Zetkin (Leader of the "Women's Office" for the Social Democratic Party in Germany) tabled the idea of an International Women's Day. The date was chosen because on March 8, 1857, female garment workers had also marched in a strike against the same miserable conditions.

The first national women's day was held in NY in 1909 on February 28 and it was organized by the Socialist Party of America.

Gender diversity in the workplace has been a much debatable issue for the welfare of the women and countries have started making progress in terms of gender diversity understanding that talent is a critical factor for growth and a further progress is expected.

Working women in India were welcomed with a maternity bill benefit of half a year, contrary to the long standing three months leave.

The symposium is being organised in partnership with Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative, United Nations Women, United Nations Global Compact, International Finance Corporation, the World Federation of Exchanges, Women in ETFs, and Women in Management, Business and Public Service (WIMBIZ).

The beauty of International Women's Day lies in the fact that it is not limited to any particular group or any one cause. At the time, it was observed on February 28.

To mark women's advancement, Reclaim the Agenda has compiled, with funding from the Heritage Lottery fund, a website and booklet called A Century of Women, focussing on women from each decade from 1900 to 2000.

In addition, 32 percent women identified "not easily considered for top management roles" as one of the top challenges while only 13 percent men agree. Through protest marches and viral social-media campaigns, women everywhere are demanding an end to sexual harassment, abuse, femicide, and inequality.

Despite receiving a fair amount of ridicule and criticism, its supporters argue it is crucial to raise awareness about serious issues affecting men, many of which are still seen as taboo in society and need wider recognition. Moreover, women who do have paying jobs outside the home are on the wrong side of a gender wage gap that averages 23 percent, suggesting that equality is not only about opportunity.
