International Woman’s Day
International Woman’s Day, A global event where we celebrate social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day to also accelerate woman’s’ equality!
This day has been here for over a century with the first gathering in 1911 which was supported by over 1 million people. Today it belongs to groups everywhere and it isn’t exclusive to a country, group, or organisation.
Every year a theme is selected by the UN and they have ranged from 1996 – Celebrating the past, planning for the future, 2000 – Woman uniting for Peace, 2005 – Gender Equality Beyond 2005; Building a More Secure Future, 2010 – Equal Rights, Equal Opportunities: Progress for All, 2015 – Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture it, 2020 – “I am Generation Equality: Realising Woman’s Rights”
This year’s theme is about breaking the bias. #BreakTheBias
- Imagine a gender equal world
- A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination
- World that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive
- A world where difference is valued and celebrated
Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
