HRM Asia marks International Women's Day

A roundup of our coverage for International Women's Day 2018.

Hello from the HRM Magazine Asia offices – and Happy International Women’s Day!

Did you know that International Women’s Day has been celebrated on March 8 for almost a century? Exactly 95 years, in fact, although the United Nations only began to recognise it from 1975.

For those who are wondering, there is indeed also an International Men’s Day. It's on November 19.

But the truth is, many people would probably welcome the day when International Women’s Day becomes  yet another random holiday in the calendar. As it is, the gender pay gap is still a reality in many countries and industries, never mind the proverbial glass ceiling that women and minorities encounter in the workplace.

The campaign for equal rights does not start and end with this day on the calendar, so we hope you’ll find some interesting insights and pointers from our special International Women’s Day coverage – scroll on for our roundup.
