International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. This day has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. Here is what some public figures had to say about this day;
