March 8: International Women’s Day
At Inclusite, we firmly believe that the benefits of gender equality are not only for women and girls, but for all people whose lives will change with a fairer world where no one is left behind.
Twenty-five years have passed since the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, a progressive roadmap for gender equality.
This 2020 women’s rights and gender equality are taking center stage, positive changes have been achieved to celebrate. For example, the maternal mortality rate decreased by 38% since 2000. A total of 131 countries made legal reforms to support gender equality and address discrimination. Today, more than three quarters of the countries apply laws against sexist violence, but we are fully aware that there is still a lot to change and that this is not only the work of women, that is why from Inclusite we support and fully believe in The feminist movement.
This year, on March 8, it becomes especially important because the review of the achievements must be added to its defense and protection. We must continue to gather efforts, from the legality and equity and with the voices of all and of all, so that women live free from fear, receive the same salary for work of equal value and are represented, in equality, in the organs of political and business decision to encourage their participation in a society that is as theirs as the rest. And for this, jointly, men and women must promote the path that will allow to create and consolidate social and political economies and systems based on the defense of fundamental rights and freedoms and in which Local Governments must ensure their development on an equal footing.
Inclusite has an equality plan that seeks, among other things, to integrate the gender perspective in the management of the company, to guarantee equal treatment of opportunities in the selection for access to
company and guarantee the same contractual conditions for men and women.
The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day (March 8) is “I am from the Generation Equality: For the rights of women”. The Equality Generation addresses issues related to women of all generations, from the first to the last years, but focuses, above all, on young women and girls.
Every International Women’s Day, governments, public and private institutions, civil associations, social agents and citizens take to the streets to take stock of the achievements and demand, with a single voice, the fulfillment of the measures, as often agreed upon, that guarantee a joint and participatory partnership.
