United Nations Women (UN Women) will organise a musical celebration for women worldwide and launch the song “One woman” on the International Women’s Day March 8, according to the UN Women office in Vietnam.

This is the first theme song written and recorded for a UN organisation. It aims to empower women and inspire listeners to join the drive for women's rights and gender equality.

The lyrics of the song were drawn from the stories of women who have worked with UN Women and demonstrated their courage and determination. The music for the song was composed by Graham Lyle and Fahan Hassan.

“One Woman” features more than 20 celebrity artists around the world.

Microsoft, UN Women’s corporate partner for “One Woman”, has sponsored the song and music video production.

On March 8, a music video of the song will be released on the UN Women site at http://song.unwomen.org.

All the proceeds will be used for supporting UN Women programmes.-VNA
