International Women's Day 2012

Every year on 8 March, JHC celebrates International Women's Day by hosting a flagship programme consisting of round-tables, exhibitions and cultural events in Janakpur with the women artists that highlight issues relating to the empowerment of women and the promotion of Mithila Art.

This year JHC has brought the celebration overseas to U.S with a new theme to encourage women. The theme of this year's programme is "Make a chain of help: pathway for women to make change". It mirrors key elements to support the women empowerment programme conduct by JHC and make contribution to City of Hope to fight against breast cancer.

For the women of the world, International Women’s Day is not only an occasion to review how far we have come in our fight for equality, peace and development, but also an occasion to mobilize for sustainable change.

It is a celebration of the achievements and contributions of each to the collective objective of gender equality and we hope that their commitment, determination and achievements set an inspiration for others.
