International Womensday 2022

The theme for #internationalwomensday2022 i.e 8 March 2022 is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow” which evidently denotes the seriousness and urgency to establish a world free of- gender biases, gender-related stereotypical notions, and discrimination, an attempt to create a diverse, equal, and inclusive society that is only feasible by collective efforts by each one of us. And given the current state of the World, crazy times we are living- in, it becomes even more critical to recognize the role of women in the #peace-building process at all levels. The capabilities of women as advocates for peace, peacekeepers, relief workers, and mediators have always been undermined by and large. During violent conflicts and wars, women are often forced to assume new roles as heads of families, providers, combatants, and freedom fighters as we have witnessed in recent times too.
 International Women’s Day (March 8) is across the globe is a reminder of women’s achievements on various fronts, at the same time, demanding global action against gender inequality.
The patriarchal mindset often asks why so? What‘s the need to smash the age-old gender identities, beliefs and re-establish fresh perspectives.
Well…it is rightful to call for action to accelerate gender equality all over the map and here we reiterate ‘why’:
1. First and foremost, gender equality is a human right that entitles a woman to live with dignity and freedom.
2. #Genderequality will reduce the prevalence of violence against women and girls. 
3. It’s imperative for economic prosperity. For example, there has been a 46% rise in complaints of crimes against women in 2021: NCW (The National Commission for Women, India). Socioeconomic factors play a major role in women’s experiences of violence. 
 4. Existing modern societies are the biggest testimony to the fact that equality brings more safety and health. Empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of the whole family and community.
5. Equal rights and opportunities will facilitate women and girls to achieve the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health
 6. Education is essential for the ability to exercise rights and consequently for women’s empowerment. Gender equality enormously expands access to education at all levels.
7. Empowering women is also an indispensable tool for advancing development and reducing poverty. 
8. Women’s suffrage is the right of women to vote in elections.
9. To earn an equal wage; according to the UN, Worldwide, women only make 77 cents for every dollar earned by men.
It’s high time to contemplate and acknowledge the fact that society will be a far more cohesive, and affable place when people look at others as individuals, beyond genders which will go a long way in remodeling the world, a better version.
