REMARKS BY HON. DR. ZAINAB GIMBA (MP) ON THE OCCASION OF THE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY ON TUESDAY, 8TH MARCH, 2022
It is yet another opportunity to commemorate the International Women’s Day and share our thoughts and its significance.
Essentially, the International Women’s Day is celebrated every year with excitement around the globe to highlight the achievements of women and girls in social, political and economic fields.
It is also a day to underline the need for collective efforts to create a gender balance and inclusive world where everyone is fairly treated.The Theme of this year celebration is “Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow”.This is very instructive as it underscores the various discriminations against women in different spheres of life.The continued discriminatory treatments has impede the optimum contributions of women to socio-economic development of the society.
Today is another opportunity to call on all governments across the world to be courageous implementing the various international and national instruments to promote Women’s development and gender equality.
