                                                    MAKE IT HAPPEN
International Women’s Day gives an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women all around the world while calling for greater equality. Make It Happen is the chosen theme of this year’s celebrations to encourage effective action for advancing and recognizing the Women.
Various organizations identify their own International Women's Day theme, specific to their local context and interests. Many charities, NGOs and Governments also adopt a relevant theme or campaign to mark the day. For example, organisations like the UN, Oxfam, Women for Women, Care International, Plan, World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and more - run exciting and powerful campaigns that raise awareness and encourage donations for good causes. The UN has been declaring an annual equality theme for many years.
From 1908, the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) in Great Britain adopted the colour scheme of purple, white and green to symbolize the plight of the Suffragettes (Right to Vote). Purple symbolized justice and dignity - two values strongly associated with women's equality. The three colors were used for banners, flags, and badges to show solidarity. Thus the purple colour is associated with International Women’s Day.
Many events will be organized on the eve of the International Women’s Day all over the world. Since the year 1911 many organizations have been associating with the International Women’s Day and celebrating in different ways. One organization has given a call to support the Women’s Day by:
- Run an event celebrating women to raise awareness for gender equality
- Participate in local activities and campaigns
- Paint it purple - your building, canteen, playground, wear purple clothing
- Do a media interview
- Create images or film
Whatever you do - celebrate women, call for equality - and 'Make it happen’

 This year the theme of the International Women’s Day is “Make it Happen”. Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers and National Federation Postal Employees has given a call to observe the International Women’s Day in a befitting manner on 8-3-2015 at all work places of Administrative Offices located in all over India.
The Circle Secretaries/Regional Secretaries/CWC Members are requested to support to success of celebrations of “INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY on 8-3-2015.
All the women employees working in the offices of CPMG/PMG/DPLI KOLKATA/POSTAL TRAINIG CENTERS/POSTAL PRINTING PRESS  are requested to participate and celebrate the International Women’s Day in a grand manner.
Thanking you,
                                                                                                                                                                             Yours fraternally
General Secretary
