On International Women’s Day today, we have selected a number of inspiring stories to share with you to celebrate the amazing stories and achievements of women from different cultural backgrounds and ages. Their stories are not only just their life journey of self fulfillment, but their actions contribute in a big way towards gender equality.

As Cultural Perspectives Group, we pledge to help women and girls achieve their ambitions, value women and men’s contributions equally and create inclusive and flexible cultures.
