Hucklebeary Celebrates Grand Re-Opening, International Women's Day

WATCH: International Women's Day - SA women earn 15 - 17% less than men Political will and gender equality

In commemoration of International Women's Day 2018, the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), UN Women and the UN RCM Thematic Working Group on Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women held a joint event to discuss the progress made for women's rights, women's empowerment and gender equality under the global theme: 'Time is Now: rural and urban activists transforming women's lives'.

NGOs are shining the light on the massive gap between genders in all corners of the globe.

That man is stand-up comedian Richard Herring, who, as well as highlighting the existence of International Men's Day, is also helping to raise funds for Refuge, a charity seeking to end domestic violence against women and children while he's at it. And with global activism for women's equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp and more - there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity.

The first observation of International Women's Day took place in 1909 when "15,000 women marched through the streets of NY demanding improved pay, shorter hours and voting rights", according to USA Today.

Google has marked the day with doodle illustration featuring a series of visual stories from 12 female artists in celebration of "everyday women living all over the world".

Happy International Women's Day everyone!

Shamshad Akhtar, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Secretary of ESCAP stressed that responding to the call of the 2030 Agenda to "leave no one behind" requires urgent action to ensure women in all settings are empowered in society and the economy - through equal opportunity, choice, and access to resources.

Mercedes convinced Red Bull is now serious threat
Ricciardo also completed the most individual laps of the day with 165, amounting to more than double a Spanish GP race distance. The team itself has still yet to reach the combined 100 lap mark, a feat in which most teams have already done.


As a member of the Women's Tennis Association's player council, Konta is well aware that the men are still better remunerated overall, despite the grand slams' policy of equal prize money.

What is this year's theme?

Yes. It takes place each year on 19 November each year and is celebrated in 60 countries around the world. Women still experience harassment and manipulation by men in and out of the workplace, and they are still struggling to be believed when they report serious crimes like sexual assault.

"When 13 men a day in the United Kingdom are dying from suicide, it is essential that everyone in positions of power, trust and influence does everything they can to help men talk about the issues that affect them", says Glenn Poole, the United Kingdom coordinator of International Men's Day. I can't think of anyone who does more to inform people that this day exists.
