International Women’s Day 2018 marks great change – women standing up everywhere and saying, ‘we are not invisible … we are present … we are here.’ As women march, strike, shout for equal rights, we hope that this year really does signify the beginnings of a better world, not just based on gender, but rather on kindness, love and humanity, in which all of us can walk with grace.
