Around the world, groups everywhere are making a firm #PressforProgress as they champion International Women's Day and take tangible action to help accelerate gender parity.
Remember to get snapping and take lots of engaging photographs of your International Women's Day activity for the IWD 2018 Best Practice Competition. In the meantime, share your most engaging #PressforProgress image with us as we'll be featuring some of these in the IWD 2018 Gallery.

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 March 8 IWD gathering 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 equality. Today, IWD belongs to all groups
collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organisation specific. Make IWD your day! - everyday!
