The International Women’s Day 2015 was officially on Sunday 08 March 2015. This is a celebration of women, but also a reminder of the need to attain gender equality, equity, parity, equilibrium or at least, some form of justice, fairness and fairplay. The Aljazeera Magazine has a special issue on “What Women Want“.

I shared a few thoughts on twitter mainly on achievements made so far in women’s political participation in the developing world and the challenges that remain in addressing political and economic exclusion, especially in Africa.
