Girls: 36 local female-owned businesses to support on International Woman's Day

International Women's Day: Free entry for women in Italian museums announced

International Women's Day: Free entry for women in Italian museums announced

On March 8, International Women's Day, women around the country will strike to demand gender equality. That's because in addition to abstaining from work, participants are also encouraged to avoid shopping entirely, with exceptions for supporting small businesses owned by women or minorities. But it is also a day when women across the world stand united in a call to action for being bold for change.

Anyway, rather than let it bum you out that women have chose to avoid work and shopping, think of all the perks a man can get on this female-absent holiday. With a pussy-grabbing president in office and a wildly successful Women's March on Washington on the books, ladies everywhere are looking for ways to support their fellow females. The Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage has said it wants to "celebrate the feminine world" by highlighting works of art by women in their collections.

United Colors of Benetton has an incredible message to share with the world for Wednesday's International Women's Day.

In 2017, the theme of the International Women's Day is "Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030", asking for #BeBoldForChange.

And designer Tory Burch is launching her "Embrace Ambition" campaign aiming to reclaim the word "ambition", which Burch's campaign argues has been used to "vilify" women.

Women play an indispensable role in the daily functions of society.

Mrs Chizor Malize, the Managing Partner of Brandzone Consulting, also said that the greatest thing that women could do for another was encouragement.

YouTube launches its own live TV streaming service
Local news programming from network affiliates will also be included, according to Robert Kyncl, YouTube's chief business officer. The service will be able to record unlimited shows at once with its cloud-based DVR - with no storage limits.

Some people may ask what is relevance of a day such as International Women's Day in a community like the ACT.

Have you ever think your life without women???

January's Women's March brought out millions of people across the U.S.to protest for women's rights. The rally is a lead up to the annual International Women's Day on March 8.

In other countries women will wear black, or different colours, while the focus on issues from femicide to abortion will be decided in each nation.

Moree women of all nationalities and backgrounds are invited to come together on Wednesday to celebrate International Women's Day.

Like what, are we supposed to stop, wave, and offer them our phone number, or go out with them on a date?
