Sovita Dahal, the organizer of the International Women’s Day Global Event Series says, “International Women's Day is an important occasion to recognize women’s contribution to the world.” “Although 8th March is officially celebrated as International Women’s day, this year we are celebrating March and April as International Women's month.” Added exuberant Sovita.

International Women’s Day Global Event Series, held on April 2, 2016 is presented by Women Techmakers Kathmandu in collaboration with Women Leaders in Technology (WLiT).

The event featured a series of inspirational stories by Mona Nyachhyon, CEO LogPoint and Sraddhanjali Acharya, System Developer at Ecommerce store.  The well-established names in the world of technology talked about how women bring in new perspective towards technology. They also talked about ecommerce in Nepal and that women should participate in creating tools for advanced e commerce in the future. “The e-commerce industry in Nepal is booming and by proper attention and innovation, it can contribute to a large part of the GDP of the country.” Shraddha said.

The face of women has changed over time from taking care of family and children to exploring and rediscovering technology.
