Hi all! Today is International Women’s Day, which has been celebrated every year on March 8th since 1977.
Around the world, women have always lacked rights and/or equal treatment. Even today, women are paid less than men, on average. In addition, women in almost every country lack full freedom to choose what they do with their own bodies when it comes to the issue of abortion.
Women’s Day invites us to recognize that this is wrong, and work towards reaching the day when full equality can be achieved.
