International Women’s Day 2013

KELANA JAYA, MARCH 8 2013 – Today is the International Women’s Day, a day where the contributions and struggles of women past, present and future are recognized and highlighted. Most governments, companies and organizations would celebrate the day with lots of activities on the 8th itself. Some would pepper activities throughout the month of March.

We decided to commemorate IWD on the 8th. All Inspideans are encouraged to wear something red today to signify that they support the commemoration. And as a show of appreciation and recognition of their contributions, each female Inspideans received a rose personally delivered by Andrew, CJ, Edward and Ijan.

It was a good surprise for the women in Inspidea to receive such a warm gesture of appreciation. For the men in Inspidea, the day brought awareness to the issues of gender equality and violence against women. It also made everyone appreciate their female friends and colleagues even more.
