It looks like International Women's Day will roll on as folks everywhere continue to celebrate our women, appreciating their wonder, strength, and courage. In his United Nations address, Secretary General Antonio Guterres acknowledged that "There are more girls in school than ever before; more women are doing paid work and in senior roles in the private sector, academia, politics, and in global organizations" but also that "sexual harassment and abuse have been thriving in workplaces, public spaces, and private homes, in countries that pride themselves on their record of gender equality".

Women's representation, Guterres said, in national parliaments stands, on average, at less than one quarter, and in boardrooms, it is even lower.

What is International Women's Day? Call it the 80 percent problem. "And time is up".
