“International Women's Day is a date celebrated all around the world. When women from all continents, often separated by national borders and ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, are brought together to celebrate their day, they can contemplate a tradition of 90 years of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development“.
