INTERNATIONAL Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year.
It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.
International Women’s Day means different things to different people, but the global focus is on equality and celebration.
Throughout ancient and modern history, women have collaborated and lead purposeful action to redress inequality in the hope of a better future for their communities, children and themselves.
International Women’s Day continues to be a powerful platform globally that unifies tenacity and drives action for gender parity, while celebrating the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women.
Values that guide International Women’s Day provide direction for the type of action, behaviour and ethos associated with this critical and globallysupported day.
The theme for 2019 International Women’s Day is #BalanceforBetter.
Balance drives a better working world. The future is exciting. Let’s build a genderbalanced world.
Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue.
The race is on for the gender balanced boardroom, a gender balanced government, gender balanced media coverage, a genderbalance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender balanced sports coverage.
Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
Everyone has a part to play - all the time, everywhere.
The 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign runs all year long.
It doesn’t end on International Women’s Day.
The campaign theme provides a unified direction to guide and encourage continuous collective action, with #BalanceforBetter activity reinforced and amplified all year.
