Days specifically to women and their issues By Vivek Singh

To anybody who is annoyed that we didn’t show International Women’s Day the reverence you believe it deserves. We just want to remind you that the UN has designated all of the following days specifically to women and their issues.

International Men’s Day is not even officially recognised by the UN, instead it has designated 19th November as ‘World Toilet Day’.

I guess us men don’t have any issues then…

6 February – International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation
11 February – International Day of Women and Girls in Science
8 March – International Women’s Day
25 April – International Girls in ICT Day
23 May – International Day to End Obstetric Fistula
23 June – International Widows’ Day
11 October – International Day of the Girl Child
15 October – International Day of Rural Women
25 November – International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
