Labour: Employers must take action to close gender pay gap

McDonald's flips golden arches for International Women's Day

Women around the world are staging protests to highlight gender inequality and the sexual harassment and discrimination they face on International Women's Day (8 March).

Aussie supermodel Megan Gale has some words of wisdom for mother's of boys this International Women's Day.

"At the time I was an extremely broke playwright who had a fundraising party and a friend said he'd match whatever I made, and I was able to pay my NY rent and go".

Across the globe, the day is being marked with rallies for gender equality and ending violence against women.

MANICALAND yesterday joined the rest of the world in celebrating the International Women's Day with a thrust to inspire women and strive for gender parity across the province.

In France, "where the gender pay gap is 25 percent", the New York Times reported that the newspaper, Libération, sold Thursday's edition at a lower price to women - 2 euros for women, and €2.50 for men. The dynamic illustrations featured on their site - that depict these women's power so beautifully - were created by designer Candice Massaria.

It is a special day set aside to celebrate achievements of women in different fields. Recently, people have expanded it to express their gratefulness and respect for the women around them.

These fierce females - all activists and political pioneers - were and are our Wonder Women.

"We're delighted to be involved in celebrations for this global movement, which we wholeheartedly support, and hope our employees relish the opportunity to participate in the name of all of the women in their lives".

This year's International Women's Day has a campaign theme we can all get behind: progress. And we are determined to be fearless, and to start an inclusive and creative revolution to end the stigma around mental health, because only then can women - and non-binary folks and men - become fully emancipated and accepted as equals in our society. "Women's empowerment is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". Through the Women Entrepreneurs Finance Initiative (We-Fi), we are working to improve access to capital for women entrepreneurs in the developing world.

The Bachelorette's Georgia Love took the opportunity to post about the one woman who inspires her the most - her late mum.

Researchers have been warning us for several years now that the mental health crisis among girls and young women has reached epidemic proportions.

As the curtains come down on today's organized marches, workshops and other events, let us recommit to building an even better society for our women and girls to live, work and play in. "Here is a sobering thought", she said.
