International Women's Day (8th March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements. The UN theme for International Women’s Day 2012 is Empower Women – End Hunger and Poverty. In many countries, International Women's Day is an occasion to honor and praise women for their accomplishments. On this special occasion WBRi spoke to Google India’s Head of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs, Ms. Paroma Roy Chowdhury about women in India and their desire for progress and achievements.
Women’s Day is a tribute to female achievement and the desire for progress. What is your idea on this?
