Why The #MeToo Movement Is Giving International Women's Day a Boost

International Women's Day, celebrated on March 8, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

So whether you honor today by wearing red or purple, supporting women-owned businesses, giving flowers to a female friend or hashtagging the heck out of your social media feeds, you'll be part of an worldwide movement pushing for equality for women everywhere.

Established in 1946, CSW is a global intergovernmental body of the United Nations, devoted to the empowerment of women and the promotion of gender equality.

The campaign theme for this year's Women's Day is #PressForProgress. The day is also a call to action through events large and small focusing on equality.

Women play an important role in the development and progress of our respective communities and the nation as a whole; however their contribution is often not fully recognised due to the unequal gendered power structures that permeate through the fabric of our society often discriminating against women.

She continued, "But now I'm in a different position, so now I have to go again, and I have to meet those girls face to face". Women are still lagging behind their male counterparts when it comes to the issue of pay and are more likely then men to live in poverty.
