Int’l Women’s Day: Gender equality must for sustainable tomorrow, says iGP


Press Statement

Unchir-Dunktok, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, 8 March 2022: Congratulating the world community on the occasion of the International Women’s Day (IWD) today, the India Greens Party (iGP) said there is an urgent need for gender equality for a sustainable tomorrow.

The theme for the IWD today is: Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow. It is observed on 8 March every year to celebrate womanhood by highlighting their achievements and problems faced by them.

On this Day, the iGP recognises that women bear the burden of keeping the home fires burning despite loss of jobs and incomes and are bringing up children in adversity. The party expresses its solidarity with all the struggles of all Indian women.

In a press statement issued here at the national head office (NHO) of the party, the iGP Co-Presidents Dr Apeksha Wasudeo Khobragade and Rajendra Minz said the world governments needed to change the stereotypes by making the political will to actively and intentionally support women’s representation.

The iGP thinks that for such a revolutionary step, we first need to break cultural, political, socio-economic, and historical barriers that prevent the progress of women.

The iGP Co-Presidents called on the world community to take a moment to thank women for their bravery, their compassion, and their contribution in fighting this crisis, also by keeping the societies, care systems, and most essential services running.

The Green leaders lamented that while women made up the majority of frontline workers in healthcare, they were barely represented in the decision-making processes.

They said it is not a good situation that in many parts of the world, women continue to be underpaid and work in vulnerable conditions.

“It is high time to end marginalisation and exclusion of women and girls,” the party stated, adding that the party remained committed to ensure women’s equal participation in all spheres of life and in the organisation.

The iGP Chief Spokesperson Prabhath Prabhakaran reminded that no country would progress and prosper without equal participation of women.

In a special message on the occasion, the iGP Founder-Patron-Mentor Suresh Nautiyal said it is disappointing that numerous restrictions keep more than 2.7 billion women in the world from accessing the same choice of jobs as men.
