New Delhi: Each year March 8 is celebrated as International Women’s Day to commemorate the achievements of women across all age-groups, race and class and caste. Women’s Day advocates to recognize, value and respect the immense yet often neglected contribution that women have in society. It also promises to fight against gender biases and all other restrictive and discriminatory practices that women are subjected to in our society on a daily basis. Each year the United Nations, comes out with a specific theme for International Women’s Day. This year, UN Women have called for “climate action for women, by women” under the theme “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”.
The statement by the UN read, “women and girls experience the greatest impacts of the climate crisis as it amplifies existing gender inequalities and puts women’s lives and livelihoods at risk. Across the world, women depend more on, yet have less access to, natural resources, and often bear a disproportionate responsibility for securing food, water, and fuel.”
