Immigrant women, particularly Muslim women, are harassed on our streets. And the United State of Women has grown into a national organization that unites and empowers all women to turn their passion into action.

"It's hard to say exactly when IWD began" says the Daily Telegraph.

Erika Kvapilova, UN Women Country Representative, told the audience: "Women's empowerment is not only an important human rights imperative, and a precondition of sustainable development, but it also contributes to higher productivity, better results and greater sustainability for private companies".

The event is set to take place in the city centre to celebrate International Women's Day tomorrow.
