It is that special day of the year again when women are celebrated for their impact and value across the world. It is the International Women’s Day (IWD).


The 2023 theme for IWD, as announced by the United Nations, is ‘DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality’.

The theme focuses on educating the female child about the digital and technology world in order to achieve gender equality and empowerment among them.

Just like the theme, TheCable Lifestyle celebrates women who have been flourishing in the tech space in the country.
