TODAY, Hammer & Tongues Africa Holdings joins the country and the world at large in commemorating International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first March 8 IWD gathering supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.
International Women’s Day 2018 campaign theme is #PressforProgress and while we know that gender parity will not happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day.
Plus, there is indeed a very strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support.
So we cannot be complacent. Now, more than ever, there is a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. A strong call to #PressforProgress.
A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
So together, let us all be tenacious in accelerating gender parity. Collectively, let us all Press for Progress.
Prior to this, the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom’s Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women equality.
Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organisation specific. Make IWD your day! – Everyday!
