Each year, March 8th marks International Women's Day, an annual observance of women - after all, we do make up roughly half of the world's population! It's important to take a moment to recognize the cultural obstacles and social barriers that women around the world face daily. Last year, people around the world called for gender balance, to value women and men's contributions equally, to support women and girls' ambitions, and forge gender parity.
The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186.
