The thrust in Manicaland, among other things, was on encouraging girls and women to register to vote in 2018 to make their voices heard.

The call for progress rang loud and clear on International Women's Day as millions around the world protested for equal pay, equal rights and respect. "When women thrive, we ALL succeed", she tweeted.

While Ivanka, author of Women Who Work, has insisted that she is behind gender equality and ending the mistreatment of women at work, her credibility took a blow a year ago when she was seen to be blocking Obama's gender pay gap policy - you know, the system working towards equal pay.

"Access to justice remains an issue too". Cases like these are left out and are a cause of concern to the stakeholders' council.

Mrs Rutendo Mlambo from Rusape said the day helps to inspire confidence in women.




Following the conference, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Under-Secretary-General, United Nations and Executive Director, United Nations Women, rang the Closing Bell with Adena Friedman, President and CEO, Nasdaq. It goes a long way in boosting our self confidence as women. "And we all, each and every one of us, in our families, our communities, our work place and in our politics, we all have a role to play in pressing for change". "It is through such commemorations that we feel recognised, appreciated, respected and important", she said. It is unfortunate that we do not see an equal proportion of women in institutes of higher education.

It is an occasion to mark the call for action in accelerating gender parity, hence the 2018 theme for the celebrations focusing on "Gender Parity: #Press for Progress", to create wider, the awareness among governments, Civil Society and Organisations on the importance of promoting women's rights and gender inclusiveness both in labour and in all spheres of the society.

'Today we come together in recognition of women at home & around the globe, ' the 36-year-old tweeted to her 5.48 million followers.

Legault focused on the social, political and economic status of women in the CARICOM region, with specific reference on poverty, gender-based violence and sexual harassment but noted steps were being taken "in the right direction" to address many of these issues.
