Monday, 8th March is International Women’s day – a day to commemorate the women’s rights movement, and to honour the impactful contributions that women throughout history have made – and continue to make.
Ways to mark this annual celebration may be limited given the current situation and restrictions, and recognising this, HUAWEI Video has pulled together a special Women’s Day watchlist.
