DC marchers plan 'Day Without A Woman'

While in America we observe Women's History Month throughout March, dozens of countries around the world observe International Women's Day on March 8. And a number of New Yorkers plan to join in, via a sister event, a "Day Without a Woman".

Each year features a significant theme that resonates with women and gender issues.

The strike is one part of a larger, grassroots movement to keep women's rights in the spotlight as the Trump administration begins to shape policy at home and overseas.

"Do not just take any kind of woman but take the competent ones so that we can start changing that gender imbalance".

How will you be participating in International Women's Day and A Day Without a Woman?

Even though times have changed and women's mental and physical faculties are no longer questioned based on their gender, the world still have a long way to go before it can achieve gender equality, which is why we need women to push the barriers even more. Zetkin suggested that every country should celebrate women on one day every year to push for their demands.

It's important that we learn to appreciate and respect them for their role in our lives and encourage them to lead a complete life.
