International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrates women’s achievements and calls for greater gender equality. On the 8th March, the world joins hands together to support, raise, inspire and motivate women across all fields of work. The purpose of this day is to focus on various themes such as innovation, the portrayal of women in the media, or the importance of education and career opportunities.
In 2017, the theme was #BeBoldforChange and to take ground-breaking action for change for women.
In 2018, the theme as #PressforProgress with a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity.
In 2019, the future is exciting. Let's build a gender-balanced world. Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence. Balance drives a better working world. Let's all help create a #BalanceforBetter.
International Women's Day is not country, group or organisation specific. The day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. So together, let's all be tenacious in accelerating gender parity.
