Donald Trump tweets 'tremendous respect' for women on International Women's Day

"And today, we are walking out for them", said California Rep. Barbara Lee before leaving the House floor.

It has emerged that half of Kenyans believe the country has made progress towards gender equality. "If you're not working, you're not getting a paycheque", said Jones.

The United States, as a beacon of hope and a leader in promoting womens rights, is deeply committed to empowering women both at home and overseas.

The day was billed as both A Day Without A Woman and as an International Women's Strike by different sets of organizers, but the goal was the same: To show, through their absence on the job and their force of numbers, that women play a crucial role in society that demands more respect.

"I thought it was great".

His tweets elicited over 4,600 replies, with many people reminding him of his comments about grabbing women's genitals that were revealed during the campaign. "They have to take notice", said Linda Diguardi, who participated in the Women's March.

The mass rallies were put together by organizers of the massive women's marches that drew more than 1 million Americans the day after President Trump's inauguration.




"There hasn't been a true opportunity to make a difference like this", Hardin said.

Women in more than 50 countries - including Bosnia, Senegal, Cambodia, Hong Kong and Pakistan - also hosted similar events. Sweden's women's soccer team replaced the names on the backs of their jerseys with tweets from Swedish women.

This National Policy on Women (usually referred to Women's Policy) mainly focus on institutionalizing the political, economical, and social rights of women by creating a proper structure in government offices and institutions so that the public policies and interventions are gender-sensitive and can guarantee equitable development for all men and women.

"I think the strike has symbolic significance that needs numbers, and while there are women who cannot participate I really think those that can should", she says.

Action Together Suncoast, the local group that organized Sarasota's Women's Solidarity March on January 21, spearheaded planning the local efforts on Wednesday.

It wasn't a terribly large showing, however, as only about 10 women left the chamber, although they were joined by dozens more a few minutes later to speak at a rally in front of the Capitol. The other is to wear red in solidarity.

However, or wherever, you're marking International Women's Day we'd like you to share your experiences, messages, photographs and videos with us. "We, of course, run an agency where we're responsible for people and service, so if something comes up, by all means, we will address it and handle it".
