New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee extended his greetings to women on Saturday on the eve of International Women`s Day.

"The celebration is an opportunity for us to renew our commitment to the security and welfare of women," Mukherjee said in a statement.

He said that despite numerous legislation enacted to safeguard women, there is much to be done.

"Legislation alone cannot emancipate our women. There is a need for a fundamental re-setting of our mental and moral make-up as well as social conduct," he said.

"Let us ensure that honour and respect is accorded to women at all times," the president added.
