A hundred years ago, women in most countries were not allowed to vote, drive, buy property or work in many industries. While progress has been made, the gender equality gap still remains.
According to a 2017 report by the World Economic Forum, there is still a worldwide difference in gender equality of 32 %).
International Women’s Day recognizes the contribution that women make to society and the importance of raising awareness about women’s rights and equality.
