Celebrating International Women’s Day
Celebrating International Women’s Day
In this day and age equality for women has come a long way since the struggles and tireless efforts of so many who have diligently fought for their emancipation. Such emancipation has over the years been acknowledged and celebrated on various fronts, from “respect for women”, to taking note of their tremendous “achievements and contributions” in the secular ambit. March 8th on our calendar marks International Women’s Day to commemorate these underlying objectives.
International Women’s Day – the business context
In spite of the above-mentioned breakthroughs in terms of equality and acknowledgement of women’s social, political and economic contributions, it remains vital to embrace the spirit of the day in full throttle! This is especially significant in the business arena since the corporate platform and equality in the workplace has been a cause of particular concern until fairly recently. In fact it still remains a contentious issue and a work in progress for many even though new frontiers have been broken for women in virtually every nation around the globe.
