International Women's Day 2009

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 4, 2009

OECD: “Every year, the 8th of March marks a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women – and offers an occasion to present the work of the Development Centre in the area of gender equality.”

  • “The new and improved Gender, Institutions and Development Database 2009 will offer latest statistics on social norms and traditions impacting on gender equality. Detailed country notes will provide in-depth information on the situation of women and men around the world. In addition, a composite index of gender equality will allow comparing and ranking countries in the area of social institutions, while new graphical tools will help to visualise data. International Women’s Day will also see the launch of Wikigender Version 2, offering many new features to explore and opportunities to discuss information on gender equality.”
