Home › What's New › International Womens Day (IWD) - 10 March 2017

 IWD was organized at the Embassy on 10 Mar 2017 with participation of local Indian women, Croatian women as well as select male attendees, in the belief that it is men who need to be sensitized about women issues.  The XPD sponsored documentary “The Indian Women – An Indomitable Spirit” was screened, followed by discussions.

 
Some quotes from the speeches are reproduced below:
 
“It is difficult to be a woman, but at the same time wonderful to be a woman” ---- Subhadra Bucic
“…… There are many challenges in my life, but at the end of the day I am so blessed to be a woman”--- Laxmi Devaraj
“A woman nurtures and multiplies several-fold everything that she receives, as a daughter, sister, wife and mother”----  Ankur Kumar
“As women, we have to work together with men in an equal and constructive partnership to take forward our socio-economic empowerment agenda” --- Meena Vashist
 
The core message from the event was: Women are not equal to men; they have a higher position in society.
