  In 1911 celebrated first on March 19, and now on March 8, the international women’s day is inspired by American’s National Women Day on February 28, 1909, declared by the Socialist Party of America. The first International Women’s Day was supported through rally by a million women and men in support of women’s rights in all the spheres of their lives. These include socio-cultural, physical, psychological, and emotional dimensions and extending to women’s geopolitical rights in the society [1]. Each year the day is marked around a theme which for this year is ‘#Each for Equal’. The United Nations advocate that men and women are equal and therefore, it is included in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Among the 17 SDGs, Goal 5 is ‘achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls’. This goal aims not to discriminate among men and women but to provide them equal rights. This is the moral and ethical responsibility of the society that girls’ and women’s equal rights be accepted, respected and permitted. These are to be translated through policies and actions by those in authorities which starts from the family projected through their emotions at the time of the birth of a girl and a boy [2].
