International Women's Day
March 8 is International Women’s Day (IWD), a global day of recognition celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and raising awareness of the work left to be done.
2023 theme: #EmbraceEquity
Every year, a campaign that reflects on the previous years’ progress and the current state of the world is chosen to celebrate IWD. These campaigns are reminders of how much the world has evolved from a state of patriarchy to advancing gender equality. The 2023 #EmbraceEquity theme aims to get the world talking about why equal opportunities aren't enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.
The mission of IWD is to:
- Inspire women from all backgrounds to be positive change agents and leaders in their respective walks of life.
- Encourage all folks in the colleges, schools, universities, workplaces, and communities to break the bias in gender inequality.
