Int’l Women’s Day celebrated

ISLAMABAD (NNI): International Women’s Day was observed on Wednesday to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women worldwide.

To mark the day, various governmental and non-government organizations chalked out special programs to pay tribute to the services of women folk.

In his message on the occasion, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres pledged to do everything to overcome entrenched prejudice, support engagement and activism, and promote gender equality and women’s empowerment.

This year theme of the day was “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030.”

The idea of this theme is to consider how to accelerate the 2030 Agenda, building momentum for the effective implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals, especially goal number 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls; and number 4: Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.

The theme will also focus on new commitments under UN Women’s Step It Up initiative, and other existing commitments on gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s human rights.
