Be Bold For Change – Celebrate International Women’s Day At Launch 22

THIS Wednesday 8th March, International Women’s Day ’17 will be taking place throughout the world, set to inspire and ignite the potential in all women and celebrate their political, social, economic, and cultural achievements. Also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace, the annual celebration has been observed since 1911, where more than one million women and men attended IWD rallies campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination.
