The day brings an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women.
Pakistan, will organize a number of events to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
This year, several departments of federal capital will conduct variety of programmes for commemorating the day.
Several organizations will hold seminars, conferences, to highlight women rights and issues in Pakistan.
First International Women’s Day was held 1911 to raise awareness about relevance of equality and women contribution, in varied capacities to the society.
Yet, for several years in most of the developed countries women had to strive even for their right to vote. Pakistan on the contrary was among the few countries where women had actively participated in the struggle and also exercised their right to vote for establishment of the country itself.
