To measure the world's progress toward gender equality, the World Economic Forum (WEF) created the Global Gender Gap Index a decade ago.

"In celebration of women everywhere, and for the first time in our brand history, we flipped our iconic arches for International Women's Day in honor of the extraordinary accomplishments of women everywhere and especially in our restaurants", McDonald's global chief diversity officer, Wendy Lewis, said in a statement as reported by Business Insider.

This year, over 60 stock exchanges around the world chose to "Ring the Bell for Gender Equality".

Bridge for Equity believes that the theme for this year's International Women's Day, PressForProgress, is timely and relevant. "It is a call to action to spur women and men into taking bold steps towards closing the gender gap". It is in the interest of us all - the fans, the families, and every girl and woman who has been able to fully realize her dreams through athletic participation. We are going to continue to change the world, in the brightest way!

Municipally, only 28 per cent of councillors and 18 per cent of mayors are female. "Today, we have 23% female representation as against 0% representation in 2016", added Onyema.

CDC report: Hospital visits for opioid overdoses rose 30 percent nationwide
The report noted the central role of state and local health departments in coordinating responses to opioid overdoses. In the first nine months of 2017, the state had 609 opioid deaths, a 5 percent decrease from the same period in 2016.

She calls for resilience in the pursuit of gender equality. We must not be afraid to rock the boat. "I am proud to say that through the combined efforts of USAID and the HEC, and the many women who stepped up to capitalize on their drive and talent, we exceeded our target", said Pataki.

She encouraged Labour Unions to insist on decent work for their members, ensure the fulfilment of National Social Policies, while pursuing government to fulfil all constitutional promises that were sensitive to women issues. We are superwomen! All ages, shapes, sizes, walks of life.I am sending my biggest hug to you.

Regardless of the fact, she religiously tweets about women empowerment - showing her duplicity in the matter.

In addition, two female scholarship recipients shared the challenges they faced in attaining higher education and discussed how the MNBSP scholarship transformed their lives.

To close the day a raffle draw was held with gifts from the event sponsors, Olori Cosmetics, Zaron Cosmetics Limited, Shredder Gang, A Thousand Reasons Confectionaries, Bodyline Fitness & Gym Limited, Kinabuti, ShugaPlum Concepts.
