This year the UN Theme for the commemoration of the International Women’s Day (IWD) is “Choose to Challenge”.
This resounds with the objectives of CCL. When the idea of IWD was conceived over a hundred years ago, it was a process for better pay, shorter working hours and the right to vote. Today, a hundred years later, the struggle for equality in majority of the world is still ongoing.
Let’s unite and challenge the World’s Leaders to Remember that more than 50% of the global population is female and that we play a crucial role in our respective countries. It’s important that governments continue to ensure that all women have the opportunities to fulfil their potential.
So, let’s hold our leaders accountable to implement change and create better societies for all its people.
Let’s hold ourselves accountable for how we stand up and chose to be counted, let us also be accountable in making that change happen!
Let us be proactive!
Let us unite and Challenge!
