On March 4, 2015, Diplomatic Courier, in partnership with Women’s Democracy Network celebrated International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month with a delegation of women leaders from around the world. These leaders have demonstrated their commitment to increasing women’s political representation in decision making and promoting democratic governance in their communities and countries. Diplomatic Courier’s focus for March 2015 is the Post-UN Millennium Development Goals agenda, with a particular spotlight on women’s political and economic empowerment and how the latter should become one of the Sustainable Development Goals informing the development agenda for the next decade.
