The 8th of March celebrates the global recognition of International Women’s Day. Founded on the principles of equality, solidarity and change, this day marks the acknowledgement of female achievement and influence throughout history and the celebration of the continued invaluable contributions to social, economic, cultural and political issues they make around the world today.
For over a century the call for action to overcome restrictions and limitations placed on women has been championed by inspirational activists from all walks of life. They have tirelessly campaigned, marched and at times even lost their lives in the name of women’s rights. However, in the world today over 30 million girls of primary school age are still denied an education and over 15 million are forced into child marriage before the age of eighteen. Many are subjected to female genital mutilation and around 70, 000 young brides die every year as their still developing bodies fail under the pressures of pregnancy and childbirth.
Despite so many advancements in the fight for women’s rights there remains a huge number that are still denied a voice. Now is the time to be that voice for them. Stand up for those that are still being forced down, speak out for those that are still silenced and join with a global community on International Women’s day to #BeBoldForChange.
