The best countries for women around the world

International Women's Day is more than a date for self-congratulations on past achievements; it is a date for men and women in the state of SC to pledge their commitment to change and promote gender equality. "I celebrate you today". Aram... it has been a tumultuous year for campaigns against sexual harassment and gender equality...

For good reason as well, 2018 continues to follow in 2017's groundbreaking footsteps towards equality and progress for women from all spectrums.

Elsewhere in the world, The Institute of Designers in Ireland, the country's largest design association, is launching the new initiative "Why Design" in conjunction with International Women's Day, to raise awareness about the gender gap among Ireland's design professionals. The company has 10 offices throughout the world, and four of them are led by women.

Granted. There are programmes both by government and private sector to empower women and deal with the challenges such as maternal mortality, early marriages, unemployment rates, land ownership, inclusion, property ownership, and security, among other rights. In order to do so, there are several internal barriers that women need to cross such as time-management, guilt-management, and fear-management.

"UN is pleased and proud to be collaborating with Bahrain Women Union and other participating bodies to celebrate the global women's day", Head of UN Information Centre (UNIC) Samir Al Darabi told DT News. For one day, women danced, sang, marched, and chanted. "It is generating a conversation that is relevant for women everywhere".

"When women feel safe and protected in the workplace", one woman said.

For years, on International Women's Day, he has responded to people on Twitter who ask "when is International Men's Day", by providing the answer - November 19.

And in Washington D.C. observance of International Women's day will include the International Women's Day Forum, along with rallies outside the White House and Capitol Building. Here in Jordan, equality between men and women means or should mean equal number of PMs in the legislature and not just few of them as decorative flowers to please, or rather deceive, the eye. He mentions also the director of the Vatican museums and the first female rector of a pontifical university, but adds these examples "should never be used as an excuse to think we've done enough or that the presence of women in strong enough in Curial leadership".
