Fahmida Hashem :
International Women’s Day was celebrated on March 8. This is a global day celebrated the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
Theme of this women’s day was ‘BE BOLD FOR CHANGE.’
The day also marked a call to action for accelerating gender parity. It is time to celebrate women and their achievements.
But it is also time to take stock of how women’s rights are fulfilled in the world-especially the right to health. Women still face many health problems and we must re-commit to addressing them.  
For many women, running a home, bringing up children and taking care of elderly relatives, as well as working outside the home, can influence their physical and mental well-being.
Ensuring good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can contribute significantly to women’s health throughout their lives.
Between our busy lives and the messages we hear, it’s no wonder that many women suffer from poor nutrition or are confused about nutrition messages.  
Good nutrition means eating a balanced diet. Poor nutrition is just the opposite, and it can lead to a myriad of health problems. It's important to learn how to eat right, which means including the right amounts of the right kinds of food.
Here are some main issues regarding women’s health - Two of the most common cancers affecting women are breast and cervical cancers. Detecting both these cancers early is key to keeping women alive and healthy. Sexual and reproductive health problems are responsible for one third of health issues for women between the ages of 15 and 44 years. Unsafe sex is a major risk factor - particularly among women and girls in developing countries. This is why it is so important to get services to the entire women in Bangladesh who aren’t getting the contraception services they need.
Many women are now benefitting from massive improvements in care during pregnancy and childbirth introduced in the last century. In 2012, some 4.7 million women died from non-communicable diseases before they reached the age of 70. Helping girls and women adopt healthy lifestyles early on is key to a long and healthy life.
Good nutrition starts with the basics, a well-rounded diet consisting of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, and lean sources of protein. Protein is an essential part of any healthy diet, but eating too much animal-based protein-such as the levels recommended in many low-carb, high-protein diets-is particularly dangerous for women.
