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.
