Update : 08 Mar 2023, 10:57

March 8 marks International Women's Day. The occasion was made official by the United Nations in 1975.

International Women's Day is being observed worldwide to honour the outstanding contributions and achievements of women, who constitute a major part of society in all fields of life.

With the theme “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality,” the United Nations Observance of International Women’s Day 2023 honours and celebrates the women and girls who are leading the way in the development of transformational technology and digital education.

On this day, women are recognised for their contributions to society, economy, culture, and politics. It also brings attention to the ongoing fight for gender equality. It is an occasion to consider the steps taken towards achieving gender equality as well as the work that remains to be done to guarantee that women have equal opportunities and rights in all spheres of life.

President Md Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages, greeting all women across the world.

To mark the day, different organisations have chalked out elaborate programmes.

Just like every special occasion, Google is celebrating International Women’s Day with a Google Doodle.

This year, Google released an animated video designed by Google's Doodle Art Director, Thoka Maer, to represent women in different roles and professions.
