In addition, as the BBC notes, the index measures women's position compared to men in their country, not to women in other places.

Yesterday marked International Women's Day, with women and men across the world taking the day to support each other and call for gender equality.

"As a stakeholders' council we are happy that we have managed to reach out to women in both marginalised rural areas and towns".

The protests came as the "MeToo" movement targeting sexual abuse and harassment spreads around the world.

While Ivanka, author of Women Who Work, has insisted that she is behind gender equality and ending the mistreatment of women at work, her credibility took a blow past year when she was seen to be blocking Obama's gender pay gap policy - you know, the system working towards equal pay. Because in her comments on a case of domestic violence in the HDZ party Minister Murganic says, 'That's how things are in a marriage.' We are angry because conservative and church circles are making up gender ideology in order to preserve patriarchy.

Opioid Overdoses Skyrocket in Emergency Departments
Wisconsin had the largest increase of the states measured, a 108 percent surge in emergency department utilization. For the 16 states, there were about 120,000 opioid overdose visits to hospital emergency rooms in one year.

Mrs Rutendo Mlambo from Rusape said the day helps to inspire confidence in women.

"The 2018 International Women's Day theme is "Press for progress". Sometimes society sidelines us, but that should not deter us as women. "It is through such commemorations that we feel recognised, appreciated, respected and important", she said. The program recognized that it was more challenging for young women to pursue higher education and made concerted efforts to understand and address the barriers faced by young girls to access higher education.

"UN is pleased and proud to be collaborating with Bahrain Women Union and other participating bodies to celebrate the worldwide women's day", Head of UN Information Centre (UNIC) Samir Al Darabi told DT News.

Federally, only 26 per cent of Members of Parliament are women.

She admitted that although women had been able to call their own into action to fight against gender disparities and had succeeded to an extent, there was the need to deepen the fight against socio-economic, political and cultural indulgence, and make more progress as there was still a long way to go in terms of achieving equality at all levels of society.
