International Women's Day
From their site:
International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.
Yet progress has slowed in many places across the world, so global action is needed to accelerate gender parity.
In 2016 leaders across the world pledged to take action as champions of gender parity
- not only for International Women's Day, but for every day.
Groups and individuals also pledged their support.
In 2017, if leaders are seeking to declare their bold action via the IWD website and show their support for women's advancement, please see details.
For the first time this year, International Women's Day will also be A Day Without A Woman. The goal, according to organizers, is to recognize “the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system—while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.”
