#International Women Day   #Women Day  

Public Diplomacy Forum, in association with Tatsat Foundation, Business World and Governance Now is hosting "International Women's Day Awards" for the true celebration of "STREE SHAKTI." This is a much-anticipated calendar event in New Delhi in its 14th edition which is a celebration of womanhood in all its myriad facets. Dr Shashi Tharoor,  Rajya Sabha and  Dr Sonal Mansingh, Padama Vibhushan and Member of Parliament shall felicitate the awardees.

Every year 8th March is observed worldwide as International Women’s Day keeping in mind the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievement of women. The core theme is to acknowledge the women frontline workers, real heroes, from the real-life, the Covid-19 Women Warriors. Women, the real 'Ashtabhujas,’ had to bear the brunt of the pandemic, juggling family, jobs, and life in all its myriad manifestations. The soul of the event is to inspire the accomplishment of our awardees who have set an example for women across the globe by gaining expertise in their respective fields, while at the same time providing a solid platform for the people who are willing to join a similar profession.

On this initiative, Ratan Kaul, Founder and President, Public Diplomacy Forum comments, "This celebration recognizes and praises the indomitable spirit and courage shown by women across fields who have excelled and achieved their aim by fighting all the odds. Our platform is enthused to recognize achievers by trying to keep that spirit up by recognising and rewarding them. I feel that womanhood needs to be celebrated more than anything else in today's day and age. Celebrating and awarding proficient women through this platform is just another opportunity to appreciate the remarkable contribution of women to our society.”

Director, Tatsat Foundation, Sumi Gupta says, “From Savitribai Phule to Rosa Parks, women have been at the forefront of social change throughout modern history”. Some of the most important movements in every field has been led by women. They make up about 50 percent of the global workforce. Therefore, it is imperative that Women’s Rights are protected and upheld by governments around the world for creating a more equitable society; without which the march of the civilization will be lopsided. The UN must press its member countries to declare Women’s Rights as an inalienable right.”
