LAHORE – Pakistan observes International Women’s Day on Wednesday, like other parts of the world, with the primary goal of promoting gender equality and recognizing the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women.
Every year on March 8, the International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated worldwide with a variety of themes. This year, the international theme was “Embrace Equity,” which distinguishes between equality and equity and emphasizes that most of the time, women do not require equal treatment but rather equitable treatment.
The fifth most populous nation will observe the day by holding marches, rallies, seminars, conferences, and other events to emphasize the role of women. The Aurat March 2023, which will take place in a number of cities, will be the most important of these events.Today is International Women’s Day, and the emphasis is on creativity and technology for gender equality.
The Karachi chapter of Aurat March’s manifesto, on the other hand, focuses on wages, security, and peace; Lahore on how to rethink justice; Islamabad on freedom, justice, and security, and Multan on reimagining education.
Aurat March is one of the most talked-about times of the year in cities all over South Asia, but this year Karachi is a little different.
There are a number of reasons why the organizations have decided to change the date. The authorities in charge of organizing the massive event decided to reschedule it for Sunday, March 12, because March 8 will be a workday. They also emphasized that women should not “experience the distress of losing out on a day of wages.”
Pakistan’s top civil leaders, President Alvi and Prime Minister Shehbaz, emphasized the importance of empowering women for society’s development. On International Women’s Day, the Prime Minister and President sent separate messages urging women from all walks of life to participate more.
Dr. Arif Alvi, the president, said that the country needs to make it easier for women to access technology and digital literacy programs, especially in rural areas. He also emphasized the importance of assisting female business owners and entrepreneurs in achieving financial independence.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated in his message that International Women’s Day is the day to acknowledge the significant contribution that women have made to human civilization and their place in society. Improvement of human culture is absurd without the helpful job of ladies, the chief added.
As he emphasized the need for the entire society to collaborate in order to increase women’s empowerment, protection, and fair rights, PM said that Islam granted women equal rights 14 centuries ago.
