Many other prominent leaders and the government officials also uttered their thoughts on the occasion wishing strength and power to the country’s women.
I march because women don’t get the same pay or opportunities as men. Because I’m done keeping quiet about sexist jokes, about snide remarks and an unspoken collusion to keep women out of decision-making.I march for my less fortunate sisters who suffer daily indignities #IWD2019 pic.twitter.com/Hyl9hi9pER

On this international womens day lets remember that Pakistan cannot be the prosperous and peaceful country we want it to be unless women who are more than half the country are given the chance to live their lifes to their full potential #IWD2019

International Women Day today not only celebrates womanhood but also highlights the road women still have to traverse in society to reach the goal of empowerment. We are moving forward at the level of the state/govt but it is mindsets that we also have to change. #WomensDay
