This Sunday is International Women's Day all across the globe, and while it ranges from being a public holiday in some countries to a more active approach in others, this week's issue of SHOUT is focusing in on just the tip of the iceberg of issues women face in our country on a day-to-day basis. For socially just and gender equal responses to these challenges, solidarity among people from all walks of life in Bangladesh is essential. Hopefully this issue will shed a light on some of the obstacle courses women - young and old - must deal with everyday in the country to prove that they deserve proper healthcare, personal space, and privacy, just to name a few.
