Published: March 13, 2019

The United Nations officially began recognizing and celebrating achievements by women on March 8, 44 years ago. As reported on the UN website, the day “has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike.” 

This year, the theme for advancing equality and empowerment is think equal, build smart, innovate for change,particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure” (un.org). This message, however, is not intended to be heard only one day a year; rather, it is an ongoing worldwide campaign to raise awareness and accelerate change.
