International Women's Day is more than a date for self-congratulations on past achievements; it is a date for men and women in the state of SC to pledge their commitment to change and promote gender equality. But the day still retains the essence of its Marxist roots by encouraging women to think of themselves as a homogenous class with discrete common interests, in opposition to men's.

"I'm amazed at how people talk, amazed to sit in Liberia and hear women and girls who had gone through things I couldn't begin to imagine. and they all wanted to be heard", said the Black Panther actor, who rose to fame in cult series The Walking Dead.

Over the past year, my Administration has championed the creation of global initiatives to promote women's economic empowerment.

The funding, announced on International Women's Day, is also meant to help corporations improve those statistics, as well as increase the number of women represented throughout the organization.

You can celebrate International Women's Day, well, everywhere. Two thirds of the 774 million illiterate adults are women.

The worldwide wave of sexual assault and harassment allegations made against some of the biggest names in Hollywood was a damning indictment of the rampant gender equality in the movie industry. "And this is the opportunity for us to come together, not only to celebrate women and girls, but to take a really hard look at those issues, and why we haven't achieved gender equity yet".

Trans-Pacific Partnership signed
Other countries have to do the same, and at least half of the TPP members must ratify the agreement before it comes into force. Canada and Mexico are exempted from the controversial measure that will go into effect on Friday next week.
