International Women's Day: the work towards a democracy that delivers

Women have come a long way and that's exactly what International Women's Day is all about. It all started in 1908, when 15.000 courageous women marched  through the streets of New York City. Their demands?: shorter work hours, better pay, and the right to vote. A lot of progress have been achieved but the fight is far from over.
