Brown calls report of trade to Bills 'fake news'

Women's Aid Director Margaret Martin said while she welcomed recent changes, like the introduction a year ago of the Domestic Violence Act, she said such laws will only be effective if the systems tasked with implementing them are fully resourced and trained, such as in the courts and in An Garda Síochána. This day celebrates the social, economic, political and cultural achievements of women around the globe. It helps reminds us how important gender equality is. The day has come to be increasingly associated with feminism and equal rights for all. (However, white has become obsolete as associating "purity" with women is a controversial concept) * "Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change", read this year's statement of UN.
