One of the events that the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) in Dhaka participated in to mark International Women's Day was the Women's Day Fair at Bangladesh Shishu Academy. The eight day event opened on 8 March and ran through 15 March. UNIC Dhaka operated a stand that provided information materials published by UN agencies to visitors. A large number of people from all walks of life attended the fair, including the Secretary for the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, and many attendees visited the UN stand.
