Countdown for release of new UN Women songListen /
Countdown toward the release of a song which celebrates acts of courage and determination by ordinary women began on Friday.
The song, "One Woman: A Song for UN Women," will be released on International Women's Day, the 8th of March.
The song has been called a musical celebration of women worldwide and features more than 20 artists from around the globe. Singers and performers from all regions, both men and women, donated their time and contributed their talent.
"One Woman" was initially performed at the launch event for UN Women, the UN entity that focuses on empowering women.
The updated version of the song aims to become a rallying cry that inspires listeners about the mission of UN Women and engages them to join in the drive for women's empowerment and gender equality.
"One Woman: A Song for UN Women" is the first theme song for a UN organization.
