International Women’s Day

The theme for International Women’s Day (8 March) this year, “BetterforBalance, seeks to help forge a more gender-balanced world; Celebrate women’s achievement; Raise awareness against bias and Take action for equality.

Join the conversation!

Use #IWD2019 on social media to stand with the groundbreakers who are building a gender-equal future, and be part of the change.

Also check out UN Women’s for International Women’s Day under the theme: Think equal, build smart, innovate for change”.

The theme focuses on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.

Achieving a gender-equal world requires social innovations that work for both women and men and leave no one behind. From urban planning that focuses on community safety to e-learning platforms that take classrooms to women and girls, affordable and quality childcare centres, and technology shaped by women, innovation can take the race for gender equality to its finishing line by 2030.

Join the world in celebrating women and girls, their limitless imagination, their joyous dreams and their boundless strength.
