The also president of the students of the Law School, extended the invitation to artist collectives to participate in the event to be held at the end of the march, as well as in the meeting that will take place on Saturday at the Los Mangos library, in order to find new spaces of participation for all entrepreneurs and women of the port and the region. This is a day to fight for equality, participation and empowerment of women in all areas of society. The strength that a worldwide women's movement achieves transcends borders, cultural, economic, ideological and any other kind of differences. Women united have the power to change the world and achieve equality in all areas of society. If there is any group that knows how to fight, it is women. We only have to look back to see what women have achieved in just 100 years, what progress has been made. But there is still a long way to go. The 8M movement grows stronger and more powerful every year, like each of the women who make it up. Groups, associations, foundations, NGOs and women in general continue to fight every year to end harassment, murders, gender violence, wage gap and inequalities in all its forms. International Women's Day was promulgated by the United Nations (UN) in 1975, but it has been celebrated since long before that date.
