Perspectives: Today is International Women's Day

Today is International Women's Day. The day is aimed at raising awareness to the acts of violence against women and girls throughout the world that go unnoticed and unpunished. These acts of violence range from the infanticide of girls in communities where only boys are valued, to systematic rape that is used as a weapon of terror. This day is also a time for women to claim the equal civil rights that they deserve as human beings and to reflect upon the progress that is being made.
