International Women’s Day is held on March 8 every year and it’s a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
This year’s International Women’s Day theme is Pledge for Parity focussing on achieving global gender parity and to close the gender gap.
To mark the day, the World Youth Organisation is holding its International Women’s Day Summit 2016 in London, featuring young women aged between 13-25 voicing their thoughts on International Women’s Day.
The WYO released a video featuring men and women from around the world explaining why the day is important to them.
