I am #GenerationEquality: Realizing Women’s Rights #IWD2020

07/03/2020

International Women’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world on 8 March. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. International Women’s Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

As the “Mother of Community Radio in Africa” we urge all our listeners to help strengthen and improve women’s rights in our communities.

In her message for International Women’s Day on 8 March 2020, UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka expresses her radical impatience and hope for change.

The campaign “Generation Equality – Realizing Women’s Rights for an Equal Future” is facilitated by UN Women in the context of the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing and the adoption of the Beijing Platform for Action.
