Make It Happen is the 2015 theme Women’s Day 2015, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women. This year’s Women’s Month celebration is especially significant as it marks 20 years since the United Nations laid down an agenda for women’s rights and gender equality in Beijing: the Beijing Platform for Action. In addition, 2015 is critical as the world seeks to define a new set of targets to succeed the Millennium Development Goals. SPARK! together with SMART Communications and the J. Amado Araneta Foundation join the call for women’s empowerment through ‘hacking the gender gap’.
