International Women’s Day
Details:

International Women’s Day ​​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.​ The celebration has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD run by the Suffragettes in 1911.​ This International Women’s Day, let’s inspire others by being ambassadors for equality in our workplaces and communities. Supporting gender parity is about recognizing inequality when you see it and taking action to prevent it from happening to you or anyone else.
