HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY. The International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. The day aimed to help nations worldwide eliminate discrimination against women.

It also focused on helping women gain full and equal participation in global development and it is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

“If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, let it be that human rights are Women’s rights and Women’s rights are human rights, once and for all.”

The First Lady was quoted during her speech to the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing (September 1995).
