Happy International Women’s Day everyone.
International Women’s Day is being celebrated around the world today with the theme of “Elimination and Prevention of All Forms of Violence Against Women and Girls.”
Events will include a launch of a song written for UN Women called “One Woman,” as well as panel discussions and other side events.
The events are sponsored and organized by UN Women, the United Nations’ entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women. The United Nations General Assembly created UN Women in July 2010.
You can watch live and archived webcasts of today’s events at the UN Women website.
Let’s not forget what women can bring to the table as we try to create a better world for everyone.
You can find other similar events and observances on our calendar.
