About International Women's Day
International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This year’s theme is Be Bold For Change. We have much to celebrate on International Women’s Day, but progress towards gender equality has slowed in many places around the world. In fact, the World Economic Forum estimated that the gender gap wouldn't close entirely until 2133. Globally, with individuals pledging to move from talking to purposeful action, we can collectively help women advance equal to their numbers and realize the limitless potential they offer economies around the world.
