The 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is ‘Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality’. The idea of this theme is to consider how to accelerate the 2030 Agenda, building momentum for the effective implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals, especially goal number five-Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls-and number 4–Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning. The theme will also focus on new commitments under UN Women’s Step It Up initiative and other existing commitments on gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s human rights.

“Each one of us is needed—in our countries, communities, organizations, governments and in the United Nations—to ensure decisive, visible and measurable actions are taken under the banner: Planet 50-50: Step It Up for Gender buy flagyl metronidazole 500mg Equality,” says UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka in her message:

We, at the Media Education Centre, Danube Peace Boat and our Network believe that empowerment for women and girls are vital to the development of societies. Women and girls that are empowered to basic education are better equipped to fulfil their potential and contribute their best effort to the societies. They are essential for a sustainable development and constructive progress of all of their family members, the household, communities and their nation as a whole. By achieving gender equality, sustainable development will be inclusive leading to a balance in every aspect at all levels of the societies.

So, let us this year step it up together in both promoting and espousing the practice of gender equality in every of our daily activity.8thMarch_2013
