The world is full of incredible women. From our best friends, mothers, sisters, daughters, wives or someone in the community who inspires us. Hopefully, we show these women our support and recognize their incredibleness every day, but International Women’s Day provides an excuse to celebrate them on this specific day.
When is International Women’s Day?
IWD is held annually on March 8th. It has links back to the early 20th century but it was officially adopted by the United Nations in 1977.
What is International Women’s Day?
IWD was established to mark the achievements of women and drive equality. Every year events are held and information is shared to commemorate the achievements of women, raise awareness and drive efforts to ensure equality between genders, and fundraise for female-centric charities.
In 2022 the theme is #BreakTheBias, pushing for a world of gender equality.
How can I celebrate International Women’s Day?
The IWD website provides a number of suggestions on how to get involved with their #BreakTheBias campaign and help raise awareness and drive change in the run-up and aftermath of March 8th. You can also search online for local events in aid of International Women’s Day, or even host your own.
One way we’re celebrating is by reaching out to those incredible women in our lives and sharing a message of appreciation, support and love.
