Her Story | Our Inspiration
As 8 March marks International Women's Day, the UNESCO Courier showcases some of the women who continue to inspire the world through their hard work and dedication.
More on Women's issues in the Courier
The affirmation of women on equal terms with men in every area of life –personal, social, physical, intellectual and spiritual − liberates tremendous creative and productive forces, encouraging new forms of participation. This in turn helps change men’s attitudes, creating new balances and new dynamics.
It is these dynamics that the Courier is committed to – leading the publication to pose the provocative question, as early as 1955 and not without a hint of irony: Are women inferior beings?
