According to the Women development officer for NANC, Ms Lilian Martins, “International Women’s day, is a celebration for women from all walks of life along side women around the world. To celebrate their achievements, empower them to do more, and create an environment where they can network, and have fun whilst meeting with other likeminded women.” This event supports the need for a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. With the aim to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive (IWD, 2018). “This event is not country, group or organisation specific. The celebration is for all women so let’s come together, let's all being determined press forward on gender parity and Press for Progress. In the same vein, NANC President, Mr Seyi Obadare, has enjoined all men, to support women on this day to make it a resounding success”
