Go for collective action and shared ownership to make International Women's Day successful
Ahead of the celebration International Women's Day on March 8, the awareness campaigns have started by media by carrying out case stories of successful women and special articles.

Also, the websites and blogs dedicated to feminism, woman development, gender parity and gender equity have become active.

Stressing the need for collective efforts of all for gender parity, the website says, "Collective action and shared ownership for driving gender parity is what makes International Women's Day successful."

Quoting Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist as saying, "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights," the website urges to make people to make the observance their day and do what can be done by them to truly make a positive difference for women.

The website is also running an International Women's Day campaign #PressforProgress to build a strong global momentum striving for gender parity.

"And, while we know that gender parity won't happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day. Plus, there's indeed a very strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support," it adds while making a strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

According to the website, International Women's Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action - whatever that looks like globally at a local level.
