International Women’s Day (IWD) is an annual day celebrated on 8 March across the World. IWD is now celebrated by countries to acknowledge the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women; raise awareness about women’s equality. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity and to fundraise for female-focused charities.

This year the campaign theme is ‘Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a Covid-19 world’. It is to celebrate the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and highlights the gaps that remain. Alongside this, a social media campaign will be held to encourage women to #ChooseToChallenge and to call out gender bias and inequality.
