International Women's Day 2017 falls on Wednesday. It celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and this year's theme is "Be Bold for Change" (#BeBoldForChange), a call to build a working world - a more inclusive and gender-equal world.

Women's Day is celebrated every year on March 8, but the pledge for gender equality, which happens to be Women's Day 2016 theme, is still a far cry with crime and discrimination against women still rampant across the globe. The world surely needs to put concerted effort to achieve this goal.
