The United Nations is marking International Women’s Day with “One Woman: A Song for UN Women”, a music video bringing together singers 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”. Launching on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2013, the song is a rallying cry that inspires listeners to join the drive for women’s rights and gender equality. “One Woman” was written for UN Women, the global champion for women and girls worldwide, to celebrate its mission and work to improve women’s lives around the world.
This year, International Women’s Day focuses 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 commemorations are underway in all corners of the globe, “One Woman” reminds us that together, we can overcome violence and discrimination: “We Shall Shine!” Join us to help spread the word and enjoy this musical celebration of women worldwide.
