The UN said the activism and advocacy of women from generations were now bearing fruits, adding "time is now" to transform global push for women's rights into action. "Progress on the Sustainable Development Goals means progress for all women, everywhere", he stressed. At least 71% of human trafficking victims, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, are women and girls, who are usually sold into marriage or sexual slavery. And through the Overseas Private Investment Corporation's new "2X Women's Initiative", we are mobilizing $1 billion for investment into projects that support women in emerging markets.

True to the global theme of #PressForProgress, the girls debated the equality question with one of the participants arguing that "we can be women at home, but at work, we are equal to men".

"Access to justice remains an issue too".

"We are lacking recognition as female musicians as advertising seems to be going our male counterparts all the time". Women want real equality, full power sharing and the elimination of all forms of discrimination across the board. Cases like these are left out and are a cause of concern to the stakeholders' council. Founded in January 2014, WE is a non-profit organization that brings together 4,000 members, including women and men, in chapters in major financial centers across the United States, Canada, EMEA and Asia Pacific to further the careers of women by leveraging our collective skill and ambition. The International Interior Design Association (IIDA)'s 2016 survey reported that 69 percent of design practitioners are women (out of 87,000), but only 25 percent of those women are firm principals.

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. "We are no longer going to be mistreated, or discriminated against, or paid less money".




"Usually women tend to be jealous of each other and it negatively affects our growth".

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".

Ms Memory Magaya (32), of Florida, Mutare had this to say: "This is an important day for women because it empowers us to be recognised as people in society".

Mary Alison McLean, representative UN Women Multi Country Office for the Caribbean also spoke to the need for female empowerment in the business world.
