  • International Women's Day 2018 Theme Importance And Why it is Celebrated

For women in North America, current experiences are perhaps better captured in the explanation on the UN Women website that IWD 2018 "comes on the heels of unprecedented global movement for women's rights, equality and justice".

International Women's Day is a day marked to honor women and celebrate their achievements from different fields.

Cllr Ross Cassie from the Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) campaign, Reverend Robert Smith from Rubislaw Church, Kate Ramsden from UNISON and Unite's Hailey Slate and Lina Jutila will also attend the event.

The Ministry pointed out that this year alone Israeli authorities arrested dozens of women.
