Women’s rights and gender equality are taking centre stage in 2020.
Many programs have been organized to mark the International Women’s Day,through out the world.
This year’s theme for International Women’s Day (8 March) is, “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”.
The Generation Equality campaign is bringing together people of every gender, age, ethnicity, race, religion and country, to drive actions that will create the gender-equal world we all deserve.
Together, we want to mobilize to end gender-based violence; we are calling for economic justice and rights for all; bodily autonomy, sexual and reproductive health and rights; and feminist action for climate justice. We want technology and innovation for gender equality; and feminist leadership.
Small actions can have big impacts in making this vision a reality. On International Women’s Day, join #GenerationEquality and become part of the movement-UN Women
