At CEDEP, we believe in celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women, as well as gender equality.
International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900s and all governments, NGOs, charities, organisations, academic institutes, networks and media hubs are responsible for the agenda for the day.
There is a significant change and shift in attitude in both the way women and society see women’s equality today. Great improvements have been made – some women believe that all the battles have been won, others believe the situation is still complex today.
Each day the world inspires women further and celebrates their ongoing achievements – in some countries, International Women’s Day is an official holiday. The tradition of International Women’s Day sees women being honoured in different ways and CEDEP believes that as the IWD say, we should all do our bit ‘to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.’
CEDEP is currently running workshops to develop a Women’s Leadership Programme. Please contact us if you would like more information.
