March 8 marks International Women’s Day, a global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

Apart from celebrating the achievements of women, the day also serves to raise awareness about women’s equality, lobby for accelerated gender parity and fundraise for women-centric charities.

The theme for International Women's Day 2023 is #EmbraceEquity. Equity isn't just a nice-to-have, it's a must-have. A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society's DNA. We can all challenge gender stereotypes, call out discrimination, draw attention to bias, and seek out inclusion.

Forging gender equity isn't limited to women solely fighting the good fight. Allies are incredibly important for the social, economic, cultural, and political advancement of women.

Encourage and rally your friends, family, colleagues, and community to embrace equity.

Whether hosting an event, running a campaign, launching an initiative, reporting on achievements, donating to a woman-centric charity, or more - there are many ways groups and individuals can mark International Women's Day. Find out how you can get involved here.
