INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

March 8, 2009

Happy Women’s day girls!

Can you think of reasons for celebrating women’s day?

You can find a few on UN’s website, for example:

– To recognize that peace and social progress require the active participation and equality of women, and to acknowledge the contribution of women to international peace and security.

– Because nowhere in the world can women claim to have all the same rights and opportunities as men.

– Because the majority of the world’s 1.3 billion absolute poor are women

– Because on average, women receive between 30 and 40 per cent less pay than men earn for the same work.

– Because women continue to be victims of violence, with rape and domestic violence listed as significant causes of disability and death among women of reproductive age worldwide.

    Thank you!!! I wish one day women get the same rights and opportunities as men because nowadays it´s an utopia…There is a long way to run yet…

    Because we are goddesses! This is our day to revel in how far we’ve come. And to think – we’ve only had the right to vote since the beginning of the last century. Happy Women’s Day!
