'Today we come together in recognition of women at home & around the globe, ' the 36-year-old tweeted to her 5.48 million followers.

March 8th marked the day when the world commemorated International Women's Day, hopefully, this time with more determination than ever to fully and absolutely empower women by ensuring them equal opportunities and rights, and ending all forms of discrimination against girls and women.

Nigerians shared messages and pictures on different social media platforms in support of greater involvement of women in the affairs of the nation.

The small company of 40 employees is proud to share that 43% of its workforce is made up of women and furthermore 50% of their management team.

"Usually women tend to be jealous of each other and it negatively affects our growth".

To all workers, we say: listen to women, and join them where they fight, because this is your fight, too.

The project, endorsed by the IOC executive board last month, covers areas including sport, portrayal, funding, governance and human resources and aims to create a roadmap to advance gender equality within and beyond the Olympic movement. 'On March 21, I will be at the @StateDept to present the #WomenOfCourage award to some extraordinary women'.
