Ivanka Trump tried to celebrate International Women's Day and it backfired

8 Mar 2018- 01:47:00

On International Women's Day, the USAID-funded Merit and Need-Based Scholarship Programme (MNBSP) celebrated the achievements of women scholars at a ceremony at the Higher Education Commission (HEC).

A common practice for International Women's Day is for there to be a theme every year.

It is an occasion to mark the call for action in accelerating gender parity, hence the 2018 theme for the celebrations focusing on "Gender Parity: #Press for Progress", to create wider, the awareness among governments, Civil Society and Organisations on the importance of promoting women's rights and gender inclusiveness both in labour and in all spheres of the society. He mentions also the director of the Vatican museums and the first female rector of a pontifical university, but adds these examples "should never be used as an excuse to think we've done enough or that the presence of women in strong enough in Curial leadership".

Speaking at the fourth edition of NSE International Women's day symposium themed "Press For Progress, the chief executive officer of NSE, Oscar Onyema said that the theme of the symposium is not just another theme for another edition of the International women's day, saying it is a call to action to spur women and men into taking bold steps towards closing the gender gap". My late mother, lovely wife and sisters are very important women in my life who have in no little measure played significant roles in making me a better person and also supported me through thick and thin, and inspired me to greater heights.

Tomorrow is the highest level we can play at in football - the Champions League against one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Since losing to Chelsea in August, they've beaten Liverpool, Dortmund, Real Madrid , Manchester United and Arsenal there.

"Ivanka, your hypocrisy and lack of awareness are pitiful". It was first celebrated on February 28, 1909 in NY.

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent".

And Ivanka wasn't the only one in the Trump family who chose to "honour" the day, with Melania and Donald also trying to get involved. "I celebrate you today". 'On March 21, I will be at the @StateDept to present the #WomenOfCourage award to some extraordinary women'.

Mrs Rutendo Mlambo from Rusape said the day helps to inspire confidence in women. Sexual harassment, violence, human rights violation and discrimination against women has captured headlines and public discourse, propelled by a rising determination for change.
