GENDER INITIATIVES: EVERY DAY, EVERYWHERE

Every year on 8 March, the world celebrates International Women’s Day (IWD).

IWD provides a common day for globally recognising and applauding women’s achievements as well as for observing and highlighting gender inequalities and issues. But not just on IWD, but all year round, many organizations and individuals work tirelessly to support gender equality through a multitude of initiatives, causes and actions.

This section of the website is dedicated to providing information about gender initiatives worldwide aimed at promoting women’s equality and assist women to reach their full potential.

Publish a page on internationalwomensday.com featuring your activity and its success. Simply register or log on to your ‘My IWD‘ account and select the ‘My Page‘ option.

Over 500 pages have been published and are being actively promoted by their organizations. Here are a few examples of what some organizations are doing to support women and International Women’s Day.
