International Women’s Day is a global recognition of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Observed since in the early 1900’s, the movement recognizes that no one government, charity, corporation, academic institution, or women’s network “owns” this initiative, but rather it is a collective effort of like-minded people around the world who seek justice and equality for women everywhere. International Women’s Day celebrates unity, encourages reflection, strengthens advocacy and inspires action.
Get Social: On March 8, all people, men and women alike, are encouraged to get involved in events both on the local level and the global stage.Be sure to tell the world of your efforts, by tagging your social media posts with #BeBoldforChange.
Events around the world range from a Gala Lunch in Hong Kong to a Fun Run in Brisbane; from Tech Talks in Toronto to a Career Fest in Nottingham. There are events in 20 countries, U.S.cities, and virtual meetings and gatherings.There is something for everyone looking to get involved.
