History of International Women`s Day - Past and Present
International Women`s Day commemorates the struggle of women for their participation, on equal terms with men, in society and in their full development as persons.
In 1977 in the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed the International Day for Women`s Rights and International Peace.
International Women`s Day has been observed since in the early 1900`s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialised world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.
Dialogue Starts between Self-employed Workers and Political Forces
On the 17 January marked the initiation of the dialogue between the merchants and vendors of the Informal Sector and the majority of the political forces in the country.
The forum was organised by the National Vendors` Unit (UNV), which was attended by the San Salvador mayoral candidates from the following political parties ARENA, GANA, PCN, Salvadoran Democracy and Democratic Change.
Nayib Bukele did not attend the informal vendorsí forum
The National Informal Vendorsí Unit (UNV), made up of various representative organisations in the sector, conducted a forum with the San Salvador mayoral candidates.
