Press for Progress on International Women’s Day

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.
