After many years as a socialist holiday, International Women's Day was finally accepted as a holiday by the United Nations in 1975.

Instead, we - as a society - have put such enormous pressures on young women to look and act in a certain way, achieve ideal grades, land powerful and well-paid jobs, become flawless mothers, and "do it all", that they are buckling under the weight of our expectations.

In recognition of International Women's Day, the Liberal government will spend $858,500 to promote gender diversity throughout corporate Canada.

International Women's Day commemorates the women's rights movement and continues to recognize the struggle and triumphs that women face today all around the world. Recently, people have expanded it to express their gratefulness and respect for the women around them.

Since the first IWD was celebrated exactly 110 years ago to press for women's right to vote, work and end gender discrimination, there's no mistaking that women have made admirable strides on virtually every front.

In a statement personally signed by him on Thursday, March 8, 2018, Dr. Ubah who affirmed that the importance of the existence of women must be recognised at all times, said, "Every year we celebrate women's day with a lot of enthusiasm, joy and fanfare".

"One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman".

The celebration comes with different themes yearly to guide women across the world.

Terri Moloney, Director of Employee Success at Salesforce, explains that having more women in high tech positions would be a huge step forward in bridging the leadership gap. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women's network or media hub is exclusively responsible for International Women's Day.

"We need to remove the barriers that stop women going into better paid, male-dominated professions, and we must improve pay for vital, but undervalued, jobs that are predominantly done by women", she said. 'But you can't act like you care about women's rights and stand by silently when your father undermines women's rights and demeans strong women leaders in the way that he does'. They carried placards reading "Unite against violence against women", "Man enough to say no to domestic abuse" and "my body, my choice".

"At IKEA, 6,000 of our co-workers are hourly co-workers, they're retail workers that are working in our stores and we make commitments to gender equality, gender pay parity, and opportunity".
