ISLAMABAD: International Women’s Day will be marked across the globe on March 8, including in Pakistan, for acknowledging women’s achievements in social, economic and political spheres of life. This year, the theme of the day in Pakistan will be ‘Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures’ and various organisations are planning a number of activities on the theme with an aim to inspire thousands of minds globally. However, many organisations, governments, charities and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues. Each year, the United Nations declares an overall International Women’s Day theme and for this year, the theme is “Empower Rural Women-End Hunger and Poverty.”
