IWD 2021 campaign theme: #ChooseToChallenge

A challenged world is an alert world.

Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.

We can choose to challenge and call out gender stereotypes and bias.

We can choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements.

Collectively, we can create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change. Choose to challenge.
