“Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.” – Hillary Clinton
International Women’s Day is celebrated globally on the 8th of March, every year. It’s a day to commemorate the achievements of women in social, cultural and economic spheres of life. International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on women empowerment, where women can make their own life decisions and break down all the barriers to their personal and professional growth. As Michelle Obama once said: “There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.” It won’t be flawed to say, if given an opportunity, women can achieve anything, even if it’s conquering the world.
