Looking back, women during ancient times were not treated equally - they were always in second place to men but never the first. Clearly, gender inequality was evident as men were portrayed to be dominant ones. However as time evolves, women's roles have increasingly become significant throughout the history. Today, they are looked upon as equals with that of men.
The annual celebration of women's month is a platform to recognize, empower and give tribute to their invaluable contributions to the societyas whole. Hence with this year theme, "We Make Change Work for Women", OAIS is one with this world's long-month celebration for women as series of essential activities were conducted.
