Celebrating International Women's Day

International Women's Day (IWD) on the 8th of March is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women. The day raises awareness about gender equality and advocates for positive change and marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. IWD is inclusive, not exclusive so we encourage everyone to attend regardless of gender.

Since the first International Women's Day in March 1911, there has been a major shift in both women's and society's attitudes towards women's equality and freedom. More women on boards means more equality in legislative rights. IWD is undoubtedly an exciting time that is gaining popularity year after year. So, make a difference; think globally, act locally.
