UN is celebrating International Women's Day on March 8, 2016. The 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is ‘Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality’. The United Nations observance on 8 March will reflect on how to accelerate the 2030 Agenda, building momentum for the effective implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals. Currently, only 22% of parliamentarians are women and 50% of women of working age work. Women earn less than 24% as against men globally and of 500 Fortune companies, only 25 women are CEOs. There is critical need for women empowerment.
