The Powerful Ladies of Trinidad and Tobago is joining hands with its sisters globally to celebrate women across the world.
The organisation in a media release on Monday said women can boast today that we have made significant strides in every possible sector of society, making important contributions to the quality of life for ourselves and of others.
It says in Trinidad and Tobago, we have much to celebrate.
The organisation says when we look at our society, we see our women as captains of industry, entrepreneurs, fearless leaders, trailblazers, disruptors, change makers, every day heroes, movers and shakers.
It said these strides both inspire and motivate the group to continue to make a difference in the lives of these women.
It says while we recognise much has been achieved, we must also acknowledge that there is much work still to be done with regard to gender equality.
This year’s International Women’s Day celebrations Theme “Break the Bias” is in harmony with PLOTT’s core tenets as it encourages action to continue promoting gender equality and symbolizes the hopes of equal opportunities.
