It’s INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, if you can’t think of any other way to celebrate, take a woman to lunch

On International Women’s Day, 8 March 2013 UN Women will launch “One Woman: A song for UN Women”, a musical celebration of women worldwide, featuring more than 20 artists from across the globe. As of today, behind-the-scenes videos chronicling the song’s year-long production will be available at http://song.unwomen.org to count down toward the launch. On March 8, the site will feature the full song video and make the track available for download.

“One Woman” calls for change and celebrates acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who daily make extraordinary contributions to their countries and communities. The lyrics are inspired by stories of women whom UN Women has supported, UN Women is the UN organization charged with advancing women’s empowerment and gender equality worldwide. It began its work in 2011, the first new UN organization in decades. “One Woman” is the first theme song for a UN organization.
