On Sunday, the 8th of March, we celebrated International Women’s Day.
This day honours the achievements of women all across the world in a fight that has moved generations – the fight for equal rights. Throughout the past, women have been pursuing a better life, better work conditions, equal paychecks, the right to vote (…) – this battle has been bravely fought, we have accomplished a lot and launched a new era – many women are more independent and strong enough to stand up for themselves. But there’s still so much more to be accomplished. There’s still so many girls and women that are being denied their basic human rights. That’s why it’s STILL VERY IMPORTANT to acknowledge this date – we want the world to be reminded of our long journey fighting for gender equality, reminded that we have gone a long way, reminded that this battle isn’t over even though there are more and more movements in supporting women. We believe that every single person on this planet deserves respect, love and freedom.
Interesting fact about Vietnam: Women in Vietnam plays a crucial role in the workforce; it is one of the countries in Asia where more women work. Indeed, this beautiful country has the highest labour-force participation rate in the entire world! An average of 79% of women aged between 15 to 65 is working, compared to 86% for men.
