International Women’s Day 2020 | Empowerment for all genders, not just one | We ‘Women’ stand for equality

Women’s Day — March, 8th 

Stand for independence and empower all genders not just one.

International Women’s Day: This day is marked to celebrate the voices of female power and bounds of strength they carry with themselves.

The theme of International Women’s Day 2020 is, I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights. The theme is aligned with UN Women’s new multigenerational campaign, Generation Equality, which marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most progressive roadmap for the empowerment of women and girls, everywhere.

This year we will also be celebrating other major UN anniversaries, such as the 10th anniversary of the establishment of UN Women, among others.

The year 2020 represents an unmissable opportunity to mobilize global action to achieve gender equality and the human rights of all women and girls.

This woman’s day the misconceptions of concept ‘feminism’ are to be broken, the idea of feminism is not to undermine one gender over the other, it is to uplift your fellows and place them on an equal pedestal.
