International Women’s Day

Happy INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!!! This year’s theme is Connecting Girls, Inspiring Future… Even after a century, girls and women are still being raped, forced into early marriage, denied education, excluded in peace negotiations, suffer gender mutilation and domestic violence.

What can you do in your community today to educate and empower women? Is there an event in your area to celebrate today?

Join US as we celebrate women all over the world.

Here is an interesting article by Jo Cox on girl education
