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.
