What an extraordinary year this has been so far for women’s rights, and on the 8th or March, we stood beside Dr Jane Goodall, UN Messenger of Peace, to celebrate UN International Women’s Day. UN Women and this video celebrate the rural and urban activists who have transformed the lives of women around the world. From grassroots campaigns to global movements, women’s activism over the decades has paved the way for women’s rights and an equal future. We feel so proud to reflect on the progress made, to stand up for change, and to celebrate the ordinary and extraordinary women who have changed the world through their words and actions.
