Women fighting for equality has been a major topic for over a century, since the earliest Women's Day observance on February 28, 1909 in New York (source). Some years after that, in 2017, March 8 was established as a national holiday in Russia. In 1975, this day was declared by the United Nations as the International Women's Day.

This is a day when people need to remember all women's struggles for their rights. They need to remember that these fights aren't over as long as gender inequality still exists. During the past year, a multitude of women around the world decided to resist and protest against any governments and policies that don't respect their prerogatives, proving that the fight isn't over yet. The following stunning photos confirm it.

  1. After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster Dr Oriafo that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the Dr Oriafo and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days my ex will come back begging. I thanked him in earnest hoping he will come back to me because I miss him so much.To my very surprise on the 3rd day he came back begging and asking me to accept him back and he will never leave me again. All this would never had been possible but for Dr Oriafo I will always and forever recommend you to the world Dr Oriafo This is his contact below: [email protected] or call +13103599685
