IWD 2021 campaign theme:
A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.
So let’s all choose to challenge.
How will you help forge a gender equal world?
Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
Groups worldwide plan successful IWD activity
Thank you for supporting International Women’s Day (IWD) and celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Run annually on March 8, the day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
Running an IWD 2021 #ChooseToChallenge campaign
One of the most powerful ways groups can support International Women’s Day is by championing their own #ChooseToChallenge campaign within their communities, networks, organizations, and groups.
Each year an annual IWD campaign theme is celebrated and continues all year long to unify direction and galvanize activity by providing a meaningful framework to connect and amplify action.
About International Women’s Day
Even though International Women’s Day is a well-known moment in most countries, it’s often helpful to still set some context.
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
The day has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom’s Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women’s equality. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
