International Women’s Day takes place each year on 8 March. This is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first March 8 IWD gathering supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
Each year IWD has a theme and for 2018 this is “Press for Progress”. Futures for Women would like to call on all its members, beneficiaries, ex-beneficiaries and supporters to help accelerate gender parity. You can make your pledge below. Further information on IWD 2018 can be found on their website.
