Celebrating International Women’s Day – March 8, 2021
The 2021 theme celebrates the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also aligned with the priority theme of the 65th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, “Women’s full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”, and the flagship Generation Equality campaign, which calls for women’s rights to decision-making in all areas of life, including equal pay, equal sharing of unpaid care and domestic work and to end all forms of violence against women and girls and health-care services that respond to their needs.
PASEFIKA PROUD acknowledges all our Pacific women in our stand to eliminate violence and honour their tireless efforts in our fight against and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements.
Here’s a reminder of the few of our Pasefika women we were privileged to feature throughout 2020 and early 2021. Here are just a few of the many women who contribute to the Pasefika Proud principles which guide us - www.pasefikaproud.co.nz/about/
