Events around the world put spotlight on progress and failings in achieving gender equality
Millions of women gathered across the world to strike, protest and party to mark International Women’s Day on Thursday.
Trains stopped in Spain as female workers went on the country’s first “feminist” strike, newspapers dropped their prices for women in France, and the IWD flag flew over the UK parliament.
On Int’ Women’s Day, more than 50 countries organized #Wikipedia edit-a-thons in partnership with @SweMFA to make the internet more gender equal. UN Women in Georgia, Kosovo and @unwomenbih support the action to close the #Wikigap. https://t.co/fXooqriOLJ #TimeIsNow #IWD2018 pic.twitter.com/6J9NkDlkGd
