Happy International Women's Day

8 Mar 2018

This year’s International Women’s Day comes on the heels of an exceptional 12 months and a global movement for women’s rights, equality and justice. 

Since last year there have been countless marches and campaigns, including #MeToo and #TimesUp in the US and many other similar movements across the globe, on issues ranging from women’s political representation to sexual harassment and equal pay.

We are now really seeing how attitudes are changing, and so today gives us cause to celebrate. Women’s empowerment is not only about individual success stories. We need to look at our collective well-being and not leave anyone behind.

The business community remains committed to promoting women in all sectors. Here at AmCham EU, our Gender Initiatives Task Force has proved to be a successful forum to discuss solutions, from promoting women in science and technology to pension gaps and women entrepreneurship.

Happy International Women’s Day.
