International Women’s Day – 8 March 2020

International Women’s Day on 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 women’s equality.

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. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.

The Theme for 2020 IWD in #IWD2020 #EachforEqual

As we celebrate women’s achievements we are so aware that there remains many challenges to gender equality. 

Let us renew our individual and community efforts to advocate and work for greater equality in all our homes, workplaces and societies and in the educational, political and church communities to which we belong.
