International Women’s Day (8 March)

On the 8th March 2017, Swaziland joined the rest of the world in commemorating this year's International Women's Day at Mavuso Trade Centre. 

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day was “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030.” The idea behind this theme is to seek ways in which the global community can accelerate achievements towards the Global 2030 Agenda, taking into account the historical imbalances between men and women, with a special focus on initiatives aimed at transforming the position of women in all spheres of work.
