Importance of International Womens Day

The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is a group of delegates from each Member State to celebrate the World Womens Day. UNGA found IWD to establish the social progress and peace. International Women’s Day required the present participation and equality of women. The Women acknowledged contribution of women to international peace and security.

Some of the problems in the United Nations and International Womens Day have focused the following:

* In India, About 20,000 brides are burned to death every year because of increased dowries. The groom's family will affect the bride on fire, an accident or suicide, the groom is also free when he goes to remarry.

* In various countries, women have been raped, and sometimes killed by their individual families to protect the family's honor. Honor killings have been informed in Gulf countries.

* According to UNICEF, 100 million to 150 million girls and women have gone through female genital mutilation. Today, this female genital mutilation is took in 28 African countries, despite the truth that it is banned in a number of these nations.
