International Women"s Day 2008: Investing in Women and Girls
(International Women"s Day 2008: Investing in Women and Girls)
2008 Theme

"At the 2005 World Summit, Governments of all nations agreed that "progress for women is progress for all". Yet the 10-year review of the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action revealed a serious gap between policy and practice in many countries. A lack of political will is reflected in the most telling way of all: lack of resources and insufficient budgetary allocations. That is why the theme of this International Women's Day is "Investing in Women and Girls".

From the The Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Message on International Women's Day
