International Women’s Day has become a date to celebrate but how far women have come in society, in politics and in economics, while the strikes and protests are organised to raise awareness of continued inequality. For over a hundred years, International Women’s Day has put the spotlight onto issues affecting women all over the world. Today, International Women’s Day belongs to everyone who believes the women’s right are human right.

Let’s see some statistics, Across the world, less than 15 % of the world’s countries have a female leader. Only 24 % of senior managers are women and 25% of companies have no female senior managers at all. Women do the lowest- paid jobs and earn less money for the same work. This difference in pay is called gender pay gap, and this gap is getting worse. Women are also more likely to do most of the housework and childcare.
When it comes to healthcare and safety, women also face significant inequalities.

In some countries, children and men give presents, flowers or cards to their mothers, wives, sisters or other women they know. but at the heart of international women’s day lies in women’s rights and equality. Despite some progress, real change has been agonizingly slow for the majority of women and girls in the world. Today , not a single single country can claim to have achieved gender equality. women and girls continue to be undervalued; they work more and earn less and have fewer choices; and experience multiple firms of violence at home and in public places.

As now we’r entering in a new decade {2021} I would like to ask our viewers, the 5 “HOPES” and 5 “WORRIES” of women.
