Maldives Inland Revenue Authority (MIRA) on Women’s Day laid out the red carpet for its female employees.
The male staff were lined up at the front door with roses to welcome the women, who arrived in traditional Maldivian dresses.
Their workplaces were also decorated for the occasion.
MIRA said they will also conduct a small ceremony at Dharubaaruge this afternoon, in which the male employees will sign a special pledge to protect and empower women.
The theme for International Women’s Day 2017 is “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”.
