8 March is International Women’s Day

International Women's Day, observed on 8th March, this year comes on the eve of the 2015 deadline for meeting the Millennium Development Goals or MDGs.

One of these eight goals, set by world leaders in 2000, is the promotion of gender equality and empowerment of women.

The theme for this year's observance of International Women's Day is "Equality for Women is Progress for All."

UN Women is the United Nations entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.

UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha sat down with its Executive Director, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, to get her perspectives about International Women's Day.
