UN Women’s statements about Women’s Day 2021

The United Nations’ website ‘UN Women’ has shared a comprehensive note to honor women on this day. It states, “Women’s full and effective participation and leadership in of all areas of life drives progress for everyone. Yet, they are still underrepresented in public life and decision-making, as revealed in the UN Secretary-General’s recent report. Women are Heads of State or Government in 22 countries, and only 24.9 percent of national parliamentarians are women. At the current rate of progress, gender equality among Heads of Government will take another 130 years.”

As ladies demand generation equality, they have the right to enjoy an equal future. It is because they remained determined and fought the pandemic with all their energy.
