8 March 2011 is being celebrated as the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. The official theme of International Women’s Day 2011 is “Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women“.
According to UN Women , “Across all areas of life, whether in political bodies or corporate boardrooms, women have a limited say in the decisions that affect them.”
According to the latest survey by The International Centre for Research on Women (ICRW) , Rwandan and Indian men showed the most inequitable attitudes. A really shameful finding especially considering the fact we are the civilization who also conceptualized ardhanarishvara.
But the story is different in GingerChai. Women enjoy equal access here and have their major say.
