Celebrating a gender-balanced world

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. International Women’s Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

Since those early years, International Women’s Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women’s movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women’s conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women’s rights and participation in the political and economic arenas.

Discuss and Educate

As many countries around the world, Portugal celebrates International Women’s Day with many events all over the country. Marches, debates and live music events are some of the activities that you can encounter travelling through Portugal. In Lisbon, there’s music, dance and food, of course.

More than a hundred women scientists are portrayed on the newest edition of the book “Mulheres na Ciência” (Women in Science), that will be presented on March 8th, at the Pavilhão do Conhecimento, in Parque das Nações, Lisbon. The book presentation ceremony starts at 11 AM and will be attended by the scientists that are a part of it, the Portuguese Ministry of Science, Technology and Superior Education, Manuel Heitor, and there will also be keynote presentations by Dava Newman, MIT teacher and Director of the MIT-Portugal Programme, as well as an intervention by Chiara Manfletti, from the European Space Agency.

Investor from the USA

Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.

Investor from the USA

The overall experience was great from follow up to After Sales. I would like to give special thanks to Mr. Simon, Ms. Francisca and Ms. Mariana.

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.
