Happy International Women's Day!
On 8 March 2021, ECES joins the international community in celebrating women's achievements and promoting their participation in all aspects of life, while fighting off inequality.
At ECES, we believe that women are the backbone of our support to democracy and development. We therefore takes this occasion to wish each and every woman around the world a Happy International Women’s Day!
The ECES family also wants to highlight all the work that has been done, and remains to be done, to raise awareness raising for the promotion of gender and the fight against gender based violence.
This year’s theme for the International Day, "Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world", celebrates the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the UN website.
