International Women's Day started with a political goal in 1909.

The annual International Women's Day (IWD) is observed in over 100 countries across the world.

The remaining historical female statutes adorned with flowers include Gertrude Stein, Golda Meir, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Joan of Arc.

International Women's Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women's achievements throughout history and across nations.Getty ImagesThursday is International Women's Day, which celebrates the ongoing movement for women's rights.

Of course, there is a commercial angle to all of this as well.

Women headteachers aged 60 or over fare the worst, earning £13,500 (or 16 per cent) less than men. And ONS figures have shown that the suicide rate among young women is the highest it's been in twenty years.

Today we acknowledge the tremendous contribution of all our stakeholders, donors, United Nations agencies, foreign missions, non-government organisations, civil society and male champions for your commitment towards the realisation of gender equality and the empowerment of our Fijian women. "This is the century of women and of feminism; we've raised our voices and we won't stop".

"As a group, they reach a wide and diverse network of women in Bexley". Progress can not be made without action, and we can not declare victory until we have collectively secured equality for women in every single corner of the world. They are telling their stories and provoking important and necessary conversations. The #MeToo and #Time'sUp movements resonated and empowered women to speak up and forced people to listen. Fearless Femme is an antidote to all the glossy magazines out there that place pressures on young women to be thin and lovely. When will you truly stand up for women's rights instead of being #complicit? Our message is that it's okay to struggle with life, you are not alone, and our vulnerability is what makes us human.

WARDC also asked government to revise laws and administrative policies and practices that are denying women equal rights and access to economic resources while undertaking legal reforms that will give women full and equal access to economic resources.

"As a mum of two teenage daughters, I think it's crucial that we grab every opportunity we can to inspire the next generation", Julie Levy, a captain at the airline, said in the statement. But to address these deep rooted inequalities, we need action, not just audits.
