International Women's Rights Day 2020

This year's theme for International Women's Day was "I am of Generation Equality: For Women's Rights and an Equal Future". It was an opportunity to take stock of the progress made and the persistent gaps in gender equality 25 years after the adoption by the United Nations of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action at the 4th World Conference on Women.
