This year's International Women's Day campaign was hashtag embracing equity.
Sadly, my right shoulder has been very painful and didn't receive the World Fair Trade Organization tool kit in time and designed my own IWD23 poster.
I decided to write and design my own poster in English and Urdu.
I hope I can record a video for next year.
Message in English and Urdu
Happy International Women's Day 2023!
