International Women’s Day Celebrations at Book Café

Zimbabweans from all walks of life will gather at the Book Café next week Saturday, March 8, to celebrate the International Women’s Day.

Several on stage, off stage and behind the camera events have been lined up for the occasion.

Organisers of the celebrations at the Book Café, Pamberi Trust, said among other activities, singers and songwriters such as Prudence Katomeni, Rute Mbangwa and the women’s acapella group “Nobuntu” from Bulawayo would be on stage.

The UN began celebrating the Women’s Day on March, 1975.

Two years later, the General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a UN Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by Member States.

The commemorations have helped form a rallying point to build support for women’s rights and participation in the political and economic arenas.

Progress made towards women’s empowerment would be reflected on the day.

Acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities would also be celebrated.
