Attendees include dignitaries, faith leaders, and academics.

“We feel it’s important to empower women, to provide a safe, encouraging and educating dialogue to learn the essential role of women as leaders and nation builders across faiths,” said Malik.

“Despite our differences, we have so much in common.”

International Women’s Day is an important annual occasion.

As Muslims, we already have the foundation for equality, and International Women’s Day should be a reminder to us all, on how to support women’s freedoms and to better live our lives.
