International Day of Peace
The International Day of Peace provides an opportunity for every individual, organization and nation to promote peace around the world by organizing practical acts of peace on a shared date.
In honour of International Women’s Day 2012, Global Human Rights Defence (GHRD) supported awareness raising and activism events held by ten grassroots organisations in four countries in South Asia – under the theme “Connecting girls, Inspiring futures”.
The International Women’s Day is a widely celebrated event throughout the world. It is marked in the spirit of women’s emancipation and their struggles in the economic, social and political fronts to claim their rights and gain equality. It is a day in the light of women’s unification when women on all continents ignore their differences and come together to celebrate their Day, struggling for equality, justice, peace and development.
