International Women’s Day being observed today
KARACHI: International Women’s Day is being observed on Sunday (today) to raise awareness against gender bias and pay homage to the heroic struggle of women workers.
This year’s theme of the Day is “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”. Women in the whole world on this day raise voice for their equal social and economic rights and gender justice.
Despite several threats and dangers thousands of women would hold their programs scheduled on March 08 and would participate in huge rallies.
The basic objective of staging the women workers rally is to struggle for making a society that is free from economic and gender exploitation and male supremacy.
In this gloomy environment, women, especially working women, have organized themselves, and emerged as a powerful force. For the last decade, the role of women in all movements has remained important and prominent.
On March 8, Pakistani women workers would pledge to pay an organized struggle against suppression of capitalist, tribal and feudal mentality, and continue to become part of national and international labor movements.
