Our headline quotes the 2019 theme of International Women’s Day, a UN-sponsored event that champions women’s achievements and calls for more gender parity around the globe. The policewomen on our homepage—from Nepal, Madagascar, and Colombia—were photographed in 2016 at an International Women’s Day celebration in Haiti, where they served as part of a UN peacekeeping mission to help stabilize the government. By having women involved in the mission, organizers were already in the spirit of Women"s Day, as studies show that more diversity leads to better results.
