International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
This year the international theme is #Each for Equal.
The theme will focus on An equal world is an enabled world. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
UN Women states; “Generation Equality is a call to action to join forces across generations, to create a world where every girl and woman has equal opportunities to fulfill their full potential. Equal access to education and income are central to leveling the playing field for women around the world.”
Around our Federation women and girls will be involved in celebration events and will be listening to inspirational speakers; realising all that they can become. They will become aware that, united, women are a powerful force that can bring about change.
