International Women’s Day | 8th March 2023

International Women’s Day (IWD) 2023

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day to raise the awareness about the issues that women still face today, such as gender inequality, violence and abuse.

On this day we also celebrate! We celebrate and recognise the economic, political and social achievements of women past and present.

This year, the UN’s International Women’s Day theme is ‘Cracking the Code: Innovation for a gender equal future’.

Cracking the Code’ highlights the need to disrupt the current codes of behaviours, beliefs and systems that foster entrenched inequality through generational and systemic gender-based discrimination.

To crack the code to gender equality, we need transformative ideas, inclusive technologies, and accessible education.

So, on this day we ask you to;

Celebrate women’s achievement.
Raise awareness about discrimination.
Take action to drive gender parity.
