March 8th is International Women’s Day, an annual opportunity to acknowledge  women’s achievements and commit to their further empowerment.. This year’s theme is “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights,” bringing together people of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs, to create a gender-equal world for all women.
