About IWD

International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March is a global day celebrating achievements of women in all spheres. It provides an important opportunity to emphasize women’s empowerment while calling for greater equality.

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”.

The theme acknowledges the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. (Unwomen.org)

We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.

Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.
