International Women's Day (IWD) 2022
International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past and present.
As well as celebrating brilliant women, IWD is also used as a day to highlight and raise awareness about issues that women still face. Because we’re not there yet.
More than 100 years ago, that first march was about ending harmful workplace conditions, equal rights, equal pay, and an end to exploitation. Sadly, those aims are still relevant today. Around the world, women are prevented from reaching their full potential, as basic rights like health and education are still not recognised.
IWD is a once-a-year chance to remind governments, businesses and everyone else watching that women aren’t going anywhere, and we’re prepared to take action to achieve our human rights.
This year the IWD 2022’s campaign theme is #BreakTheBias. The campaign asks you to cross your arms in solidarity to call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping.
Here staff at ILC strike the IWD 2022 pose and share our #BreakTheBias image.
