From China to Costa Rica, from Mali to Malaysia acclaimed singers and musicians, women and men, have come together to spread a message of unity and solidarity: We are “One Woman” (#1woman). To be launched on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2013, the song is a rallying cry that inspires listeners to join in the drive for women’s rights and gender equality. #1woman was written for UN Women, the global champion for women and girls, to celebrate its mission and work to improve women’s lives around the world. This year, International Women’s Day will focus on ending violence against women—a gross human rights violation that affects up to 7 in 10 women and a top priority for UN Women. As people everywhere prepare their commemorations, #1woman reminds us that together, we can overcome violence and discrimination: “We Shall Shine!” Join us on 8 March to help spread the word and enjoy this musical celebration of women worldwide.
UN Women is the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide. http://unwomen.org
