McDonald's flips its golden arches to make a statement

Artists are invited by Semiahmoo Arts to submit a maximum of three works of arts celebrating International Women's Day and/or advocates for gender parity.

"I loved being part of a team of women at the top of their game, working all together for the first time on one flight, to get it ready and away on time for our customers", she added.

"In today's society, it is important we note that societies flourish well when women are given equal respect and are not taken for granted, they must no longer be regarded as dependent souls but independent and self-reliant beings in every respect".

The commemorations will be held in Matabeleland North Province in Nkayi District today.

The theme for this year's International Women's Day is "Time is Now: Rural and urban activists transforming women's lives" with the Campaign Theme of #PressforProgress.

The programme focused on celebrating the importance of women in a society and spreading awareness on the importance of equality.

In 2014, the CSW58 (58th session of the Commission on the Status of Women) aimed on "Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls".

My Administration is also supporting women in the United States by empowering them to continue driving the success of our Nation. Happy women's day to every virtuous and incredible woman, your presence is inexpressible in few words and so are your deeds.

Governments in Asia and the Pacific must take urgent action to ensure greater empowerment of women and girls to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the United Nations underscored at a forum in Bangkok today.

Supermodel, Lisa Morgan said it was critical for women in showbiz to value themselves rather than allow outsiders - like modelling agencies - "to make money off us".

"To the woman who made me the woman I am, taught me to believe in and chase my dreams and continues to make me strong every single day", the reality star wrote on a throw-back picture of her attractive mum.

"Your safety represents the safety of all Afghan women", she said, reminding women in uniform to report any abuse by superiors to the rights commission. After the numbers are crunched, the move means women will operate about a quarter of the scheduled flight for the airline on March 8.

Women's representation, Guterres said, in national parliaments stands, on average, at less than one quarter, and in boardrooms, it is even lower.

"I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. We are now leading 61 exchanges worldwide in the global call for gender equality", Ms Van der Oord said.
