On the occasion of the 101st commemoration of International Women’s Day, JSAPMDD stands in solidarity with all women struggling against various forms of oppression, deprivation and discrimination. Annually, we commemorate this day throughout the world to sharply and resoundingly call attention to the millions of women, especially in the grassroots who, despite the many human right instruments that recognize their social, economic and cultural rights, live in conditions of grinding poverty and deprivation.
