About International Women’s Day
Marked each year on March 8th, International Women’s Day is a ‘global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.’
The day also acts as a call to action for accelerating gender parity but more widely celebrates women’s achievements, raises awareness about women’s equality and provides an opportunity to fundraise for female-focused charities.
