TARGETED-MPI celebrates International Women’s Day

ΤARGETED-MPI celebrates International Women’s Day! Today we honour the fight for women’s rights and pay tribute to inspiring women who contribute to gender equality and human rights. We remember Eleanor Roosevelt and her eternal legacy, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We stand next to Malala Yousafzai and her fights for the right of girls to education. We stand with admiration and support to so many heroines around the world who paved the way and continue to fight for a better and more equal future. Let this day remind us that we must continue to fight for equality until we create the world that so many women envisioned. Until we all become equal.
