What is International Women's Day?

International Women's Day is a worldwide event with a human rights theme, highlighting the social, economic, cultural and political achievements and contributions made by women. The first International Women's Day occurred in 1911, supported by over one million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.

Let's all be #EachforEqual.

Gender equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive. 

The IWD 2020 campaign theme is drawn from a notion of Collective Individualism. We are all parts of a whole. Our individual actions, conversations, behaviours and mindsets can have an impact on our larger society. Collectively, we can make change happen. Collectively, we can each help to create a gender equal world. 

We can all choose to be #EachforEqual.

So put your arms out front and STRIKE THE #EachforEqual POSE to motivate others and to make International Women's Day YOUR day.
