Is it still necessary to attract attention to inequalities between men and women?

Worldwide the 8th of March is recognized as International Women’s Day. The main reason and significance behind this celebration comes from a desire to encourage and grow civil awareness. We draw inspiration from this and we have asked ourselves: is it still necessary to celebrate women and attract attention to inequalities and injustices between men and women?
