IT’S about solidarity and unity of all, not just women.
It’s not about an ‘us versus them’ mentality when it comes to women and men.
But an inclusive ‘us’ in the pursuit of equality in status, rights and opportunities.
The name may suggest it’s a day for women, but International Women’s Day needs the entire community to come together in the fight for equality now more than ever.
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to #PressforProgress for gender parity.
A world where women in the same positions as their male counterparts earn far less than them, can’t be considered equal.
And according to the World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report, gender parity is more than 200 years away.
But two centuries is far too long to wait.
It’s time that women and men support one another and join the continued pursuit of a world where both women and men are considered on an equal playing field.
