To consolidate efforts towards achieving women's specific justice and to promote all women's rights without discrimination

On the occasion of the 8th day of March every year, International Women's Day, greets the world Organization for Human Rights and international law, with all the peoples of the world and all the forces against violence and discrimination and defending the values of tolerance, citizenship, equality and human dignity, and the Organization congratulates and blesses all women of the world and salutes the struggles of the regional and global women's movement.

The organization declares its full solidarity with women in all countries of the world in order to enable them to exercise their rights and to work to eliminate all forms of discrimination and violence that have been exposed to them and to activate women's right to participate and to activate their role in real and active representation on all issues related to the building of the homeland and the citizen.

We celebrate this great day and under the international slogan of 2019, "We aspire to equality, build intelligently, innovate for change," and in recognition of women and in honor of their role and loyalty to their sacrifices, and insisting on the need to improve their status and enhance their status. Where international focus will be placed on innovative ways to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.

Overall, in many countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America, women face many violations that require prominent local, regional and international efforts to improve women's realities, overcome their rights, live justly, honorably and equitably, and ensure that they are not subjected to systematic violations. To their rights or to derogate from their freedoms or dignity. Which should be a top priority for young people and the Governments of those countries.

We at the International Organization for Human Rights and International Law consider the International Women's Day an opportunity to reflect on the progress made, advocate change and accelerate the courageous efforts of all women and their extraordinary roles in the history of their countries and societies. We will work very hard to keep pace with and help accelerate the United Nations' 2030 agenda and will work with momentum to implement the global goals - particularly Goal 5 on gender equality and Goal 4 - to ensure quality, equitable and inclusive education for all- effective implementation.

We must mention some of the facts and figures that illustrate the situation of women in 2018 at the global level:

• 750 million women and girls were married before the age of 18.
• At least 200 million women and girls in 30 countries have undergone female genital mutilation (FGM / C).
• In 18 countries, the husband can prevent his wife from working.
• Women in 39 countries do not have equal inheritance rights with their male brothers.
• 49 countries lack laws that protect women from domestic violence.
• One out of every five females, including 19% of those between the ages of 15 and 49, experienced physical and / or sexual violence during the past 12 months. However, 49 countries lack laws specifically protecting women from such violence.
• Women have made important breakthroughs in political positions around the world, with their representation in national parliaments at 23.7% still far from parity.
• Globally, only 13% of landowners are women.
• Over 100 countries have taken action to track budget allocations for gender equality.
• Women in the Middle East and North Africa occupy one in five paid jobs in the non-agricultural sector. The proportion of women working outside the agricultural sector increased from 35% in 1990 to 41% in 2015.
• In 46 countries, women now account for more than 30% of parliamentary seats in at least one parliamentary chamber.
• In South Asia, the risk of marriage of girls in childhood has decreased by more than 40% since 2000.
• The proportion of girls aged 15 to 19 years who are subject to female genital mutilation (FGM) in 30 countries fell from one girl in two girls in 2000 to one in three girls by 2018.

We at the International Organization for Human Rights and International Law consider that the world's nations have made progress in gender equality under the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education for girls and boys), but women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in all spot from around the world. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but also a necessary foundation for peace, prosperity and sustainability in the world.

We hope that equal access for women and girls to education, health care, decent work, representation in political and economic processes and decision-making will serve as fuel for sustainable economies and benefit societies and all humanity.

We refer to some of the main objectives of the 2030 Agenda, which we adopt in full and most importantly:

1. By 2030, all girls and boys must have access to a fully free education, from primary to secondary, leading to the four learning outcomes.
2. By 2030, all girls and boys must be guaranteed access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-school education, ready for primary education.
3. Eliminate all forms of discrimination against women and girls everywhere.
4. Eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in the public and private spheres, including human trafficking, sexual exploitation and other forms of exploitation.
5. Eliminate all harmful practices against children such as early marriage, forced marriage and female genital mutilation.
6. The world of work is changing, leaving great effects on women. On the one hand, globalization, the technological and digital revolution and the opportunities it brings, and on the other hand, the increasing informal images of employment, unstable livelihoods and income, new financial and trade policies and environmental impacts are all to be addressed in the context of women's economic empowerment.

All this requires the modification of government policies and the involvement of civil societies in the crystallization of these new policies and the obligation of all parties to work to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women through a program to support and raise awareness of citizens and empower poor families. , And the beginning will be only by taking action and activating the direction of political reform and enable the democratic transition.
