International Women’s Day takes place on March 8 every year to celebrate women’s rights, women’s contributions to society, raises and inspires people to act in the ongoing fight for gender equality and show support for organisations that help women globally. This year’s theme is Choose to Challenge. It feels incredibly timely and highlights the importance of challenging stereotypes, biases and misconceptions in the interest of creating a more inclusive and gender-equal world.
The 2020 theme was #EachforEqual; 2019’s was #BalanceforBetter. In 2018, the theme of International Women’s Day was #PressforProgress, the 2017 Women’s Day theme was #BeBoldforChange, and the 2016 theme was #PledgeforParity.
IWD 2021 Event
***FREE EVENT – OPEN TO GENERAL PUBLIC***
We believe in a gender-equal world, and want to celebrate women in all communities.
Given the institutional racism and structural inequality highlighted by the Black Lives Matter and Civil Rights Movement, we felt the need to highlight the Black Women in our society campaigning for change.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from various speakers, and ask questions during a question and answer session.
