International Women's Day: Everything you need to know

March 8 is International Women's Day, and this year the organizers of the January Women's March have declared it as a "Day Without a Woman". Outside of rallies, those participating in "Day Without a Woman" were asked to stay home from work, wear red, and avoid spending money. In fact, if all women were to take off March 8, the Center for American Progress projects it would cost the USA almost $21 billion in gross domestic product.

The goal of the Day Without a Woman strike, according to Women's March organizers, "is to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the USA and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face". March 8 is the chosen date for IWD because it marks the women's march in Petrograd, Russia, that sparked the 1917 Russian Revolution.

Empowering women is to transform their abilities to acquire full potential of social and economic fabric of the country which afterward will enable them to grow as a successful individual ready to serve the nation shoulder to shoulder with men.

Women also represent 55 percent of all college students. What challenges women face in the country, there is long list; challenges in family where a girl is bound to limit her easy access to the society, challenge to acquire good education, though weak in strength, challenge to help men especially in the farming and agriculture with equal muscular strength.
