It was on the 8th of March 1908 when hundreds of women workers led a historic demonstration in Manhattan, USA’s Rutgers Sq. to demand their right to vote. Subsequently, Women’s day was celebrated each year albeit on varying dates until 1922, when Lenin declared that March 8th should be designated officially as Women’s day. It is a moment for all of us to reflect on and celebrate the strides made in women empowerment globally.
More than 100 years later despite social and economic evolutions, women are still finding themselves in concrete jungle battlefields, hustling and grinding to justify and validate their place.
Gender biases and stereotypes have been deeply ingrained in our society, Gender inequity – real and perceived – still exists in the modern workplace. Despite social and economic evolutions, women are still finding themselves in concrete jungle battlefields, working their way up to justify and validate their place at work. The theme for Women’s Day this year is #BreakTheBias and at Planet Smart City, we salute the powerful women who have made contributions in every way they can.
We are proud to launch our very own podcast and the first episode on anchor.fm taking our voices louder and wider into the world.
