On March 8th, the world stood to honour the advancements made by, and achievements of women all over the world. This year’s theme #choosetochallenge, while applauding these strides, also acknowledged the miles still left in the journey towards eliminating gender bias and inequality; “We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.”
Last year, Legal Business had released a special report celebrating 20 of Nigeria’s Women in Business Law, blazing the trail in 10 sectors of the profession. Thus, this International Women’s Day, we choose to celebrate them, those that have come before, and the many more that will follow. Happy International Women’s Day to us all!
