In honor of today being International Women’s Day, we would like to share the final product of a World Bank-wide film initiative, which is a part of the One Day on Earth campaign. The video shows women from all corners of the world: Laos, Bolivia, Iraq, and Tanzania - highlighting their work and emphasizing the importance of being able to get involved outside their homes and help the community. It shows snapshots from over 45 countries in a 24-hour period on November 11, 2011. It captures real results on a global platform and brings together working women talking about their jobs.  Women business owners, construction workers, doctors, farmers and more explained to us why their work matters―to them, to their families, and to their communities.

Watch below and listen to what they have to say!
