Every year on March 8, International Women’s Day is celebrated all over the world to commemorate the achievements of women in political, social, cultural and economic spheres.

It helps reminds us how important gender equality is. Formally, Women’s Day was adopted by the UN in 1977, before which it was mostly celebrated in socialist and communist countries.

Today, International Women’s Day is a public holiday in some countries and largely ignored elsewhere.

In some places, it is a day of protest; in others, it is a day that celebrates womanhood.

A 2019 report from the World Bank found that women have full legal rights to men in only six countries: Belgium, Denmark, France, Latvia, Luxembourg and Sweden.

The day is an official holiday in Afghanistan, Angola, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China (for women only), Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar (for women only), Moldova, Mongolia, Nepal, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Zambia.

Article 16 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights enshrines the right of consenting men and women to marry and found a family.

“(1) Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.

(2) Marriage shall be entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses.

(3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.”

United Nations Declaration

The Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women was adopted by the United Nations in 1993. It defines violence against women as “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life.” This resolution established that women have a right to be free from violence. As a consequence of the resolution, in 1999, the General Assembly declared the day of 25 November to be the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
