International Women's Day

 TODAY marks a global event for women all over the  world, as officially recognized by the United Nations.  In some countries, the observance of the International Women’s Day is even a national holiday, such as China, Armenia, Russia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.

The focus of global celebrations of International Women’s Day ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements.

In Indonesia, the website LiveOlive was recently launched in time for the commemoration of the International Women’s Day. The site was created to empower women in gaining access to financial information in a fun and simple way, while creating a community of women dedicated to talking about money and related issues.

LiveOlive’s tagline says it all: MONEY MADE SIMPLE.

No more complex financial theories or intimidating graphs, but rather a simple and direct explanation and discussion on issues that affect women’s daily lives. LiveOlive provides an aggregation of interest rates of the major institutions on: savings/time deposits, home/auto loans, credit card calculation, tips & tricks, and email programs that meet women in their life events: about to graduate, starting to work, giving birth, career advancement, deep in debt, and even those planning to retire.

LiveOlive is registered and recognized by the International Women’s Day global hub and initiated the website launch last March 7, 2012 as part of the global celebration. The guests of honor were Ms Yoko Doi, Financial Specialist Access to Finance for the Finance and Private Sector Development Unit in World Bank Indonesia Country Office and Mr Wim Tangkilisan, Special Assistant in the Cabinet to President Susilo Bambang Yudyohono of the Republic of Indonesia. The event was also attended by local media and members of the Jakarta Foreign Correspondents Club, together with senior executives from the banking/finance, telecommunications, and diplomatic community.

International Women’s Day is a global hub for sharing information, events, news and resources. The website was founded in 2001 as a non-profit philanthropic venture dedicated to keeping International Women’s Day (IWD) alive and growing. Since 2007, IWD has gained considerable momentum due to greater media attention, events, social networking and corporate support. IWD is now celebrated via wide scale activity in almost every country and many world leaders support the day with official statements.
