It is a day, observed by many countries around the world, on which women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. 

International women panelists from the ISU community will discuss how women's rights have developed over the years in the countries they are from, as part of a global movement towards demanding more equality and accessibility. The panelists will address how women's rights have affected them and the women they know, shedding light into the intricacies of such ideals in different parts of the globe.
