Collective action and shared ownership for driving gender parity is what makes International Women's Day successful.
Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist
"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care
about human rights." So make International Women's Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for
International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The
day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the
first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party
of America, United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women's equality.
Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
IWD is not country, group or organization specific.
Make IWD your day - everyday.
