International Women’s Day
March 8, 2024
International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8th. This global day recognizes and celebrates the achievements and contributions of women throughout history, while also acknowledging the ongoing challenges and disparities they face. International Women’s Day serves as a platform to advocate for gender equality, women’s rights, and the empowerment of women in various spheres of life.
The day has its roots in the labour and women’s rights movements of the early 20th century. Over the years, it has evolved into a global movement with events, activities, and initiatives organized by individuals, organizations, and governments around the world. The themes for International Women’s Day often centre on pressing issues such as equal pay, access to education, healthcare, and opportunities, as well as the elimination of gender-based violence.
International Women’s Day provides an opportunity to reflect on progress made, celebrate achievements, and call for continued efforts to address gender inequalities. It serves as a catalyst for conversations and actions aimed at creating a more inclusive and equitable world for all, regardless of gender.
