This day is a day to honor the life, grit and determination of women. These words of Charles Malik, former President of United Nations General Assembly rightly sum up the role of women “The fastest way to transform society is to mobilize women of the world.” Legislations are made so that women get equivalent opportunities.

This day is the need for the hour as it is a time for introspection. This day has been recognized by United Nations General Assembly as a means of recognizing the role of women to the society.
