INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY AND A NEW HORIZON | By: Ayhan Ozer
“This vault was constructed in 1500 A.D. It is called “keystone”, and holds a figure of a woman.
If this keystone is removed from its place, the whole arch will collapse. Why this keystone was configured in the shape of a woman? Because, if we remove women from our lives, our existence will collapse, too…” * Each year on March 8 the world celebrates the International Women’s Day, and salutes women around the world for their perpetual struggles to reinforce their civic rights. The world fully recognizes the enormous contributions that the women have made to our civilizations, first and foremost, by elevating the standards of our society. On this day the focus is on the rich potential of women which is a cherished gift for humanity. The world extends gratitude to women for this blessing. On this occasion we are conscious about the perpetual need to eliminate the hurdles that impede women from achieving their exalted goals.
