Every year we celebrate the International Women's Day (IWD) on March 8 and the theme for 2015 is "Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture It!"
IWD is a time to reflect on the struggles of women and to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of all women irrespective of age.
Women all over the world are faced with a myriad of problems ranging from violence, sexual assault, gender discrimination to genital mutiliation. In spite of this, many ordinary females have emerged stronger, playing extraordinary roles in their communities and countries.
To mark the day, many events will be taking place all over the world including national holidays in China, Bulgaria, Russia and Vietnam.
#MakeItHappen is a call to action by the international women's day website. Whatever your dreams and goals, go on and make them happen.
Happy women's day!!!
